In brief: Yes

The gardnerella bacteria that cause BV have a limited spectrum of antibiotics that are effective.
Usually Metronidazole and Clindamycin are the 2 'first line' treatments, but research studies have shown that Azithromycin can be effective in treating bv.

In brief: Bacterial Vaginitis

Only if the infection causing the vaginosis is something that Azithromycin treats.
There are several different bacterial infections that cause this infection. It is always best to test and to treat the specific infection with the right medicine.
