Medicines are made to provide fighting power against bacteria and other types of germs. Each medicine which is easily available in medical stores is made with thorough research and years of continuous work. Each ingredient is researched well before putting into a medicine. If the disease is not curable, then doctors prescribe antibiotic medicines. Antibiotic are medicines that kill the bacteria or parasites and slow down the speed of growth. These types of medicines are also called anti bacterials. Metronidazole 400 mg is also an antibiotic medicine which is used to treat infections caused due to bacteria.
Bacteria can be bad or good. So off course, antibiotic medicines like Metronidazole 400 mg are given to kill bad bacteria. In most of the countries, you can buy these antibiotic medicines from medical stores without doctor’s prescription. But in UK, you cannot get these medicines like this way.

What is Metronidazole 400mg used for?
Metronidazole 400mg is used to treat various types of disease. Some of them are:
Trichomoniasis: It is the common cause of Vaginitis and is a sexually transferred disease. It is also called Trich. In women, common Trich infection takes place in vagina and urethra. Symptoms include inflammation of cervicitis, vagina and urethra and appear in 6 to 30 days of exposure. As this spreads due to sexual relations, use of male condoms may prevent Trichomoniasis. Women suffering from Trichomoniasis may give birth to premature or low weight infant. Metronidazole 400 mg or flagyl is found to be very effective in treating Trich.
Bacterial vaginosis – BV: It happens when there is imbalance of bacteria (bad bacteria increase in number to good ones) in vagina. Out of three, at least one woman is suffering from this disease. Usual vaginal discharge (smell like a fish) is usually the cause of BV. But it is strange to write here that most of the women do not have any symptoms, so it becomes difficult to expose BV. Smoking, IUD (intrauterine device), bubble baths, scented soaps and vaginal deodorant are also the most obvious reasons of Bacterial Vaginosis.
Pelvic inflammatory disease – PID: It is infection in upper genital tract of the woman which includes womb, ovaries and fallopian tubes. Quite common in women aged in between 15 to 24 years, one out of 50 women encounters PID every year. The symptoms of Pelvic inflammatory disease are not always obvious so it becomes very difficult to diagnose it. Metronidazole 400mg works quickly to kill the bacteria causing infection in womb, ovaries and fallopian tubes.
Giardiasis: Also known as beaver fever and develop as a result of an infection in digestive systems due to tiny parasite called Giardiasis. The common causes of Giardiasis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, flatulenceand bloating.
