In brief: See below

Bv is a synergistic infection involving gardnerella and a number of other, anaerobic bacteria.
It is treated with Metronidazole oral or intravaginal treatment. Tinidazole and Clindamycin are alternatives. Oral and intravaginal probiotics containing lactobacilli can help.

In brief: Bv

Vaginal Metronidazole and vaginal Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) are best although the oral medicine works as well.
There is also tindamax.
