How can metronidazole (Flagyl) help with treating trichomoniasis?

ANSWER

It's the drug most commonly used to fight trichomoniasis. It comes in tablet form taken by mouth and gel form for vaginal use. Your partner should also be treated to lower the risk of reinfection. Get retested after 3 months to ensure you are clear of the infection.
