Common Questions and Answers about Metrogel bv

metrogel

Tinidazole is an antibiotic that appears to have fewer side effects than metronidazole and is also more effective in treating bacterial vaginosis. You can use metronidazole gel(metrogel) or clindamycin cream(cleocin) for local application on vagina.They have fewer side effects.But inform your gynecologist before talking them.
I went back to the doctor had a different gyn and this time she looked at the discharge under a microscope and said I had BV. She prescribed metro gel and I asked if it would interact with my period that would be starting that day. I had an incident of unprotected sex in april but was cleared of all std's in July by blood tests. I have been in a monogamous relationship for seven years and made one mistake.
Do i have to get tested for stomach ulcer, i have never suffered from stomach. Another issue that im concerned about is if BV is permanently treatable or it will come back even if i am not sexually active? Why it happened after sex? An the doctor said the cervix looked irritated, is it possible to be irritated from BV? when is the appropriate time to go back for a check-up immediatelly after medication or a month after?
Be aware with rephresh - you might get a chunky discharge when using it much like when you use metrogel ( vaginal flagyl ) to treat bv - it's dead bacteria working its way out of your body. fem dophilis is a probiotic that has been shown to colonize the urogenital tract in us gals with "good" bacteria that helps to fight off the "bad" bacteria that causes bv. you can buy it thru amazon even and keep it in your fridge.
I have been looking up on what it could b and it says BV ... I ended up on this and has been looking at other women's post and I'm really worried I haven't seen anything saying it goes away.... :( ... I'm making an appointment with my gy to go he it checked out dice I've not had two sexual partners in my life and since te most recent one this started... There's no itchin or burning or anything just the discharge and the smell.
I do not know what to do and your suggestion will be very much appreciated.Another question that disturbs me why geting BV after the first time sex? (never had sex afet that anymore). Will BV create any problem for my future fertility? After the antibiotics could it be clear up or i have to go back for another check - up afer a month? I am not sexually active and wont be for a long time. Also the doctor said the cervix looks irritated, can it be irritated from BV?
I had several bouts with BV years ago. The doctor always prescribed Flagyl and the Metrogel and they would work but it'd be right back in a month or two. I think the problem was that I was wearing thongs everyday and using the regular feminine wash. I stopped wearing the thongs (saved them for special occasions only) and I switched to the sensitive skin feminine wash. Ever since I did that it seemed to help (knock on wood).
Hi, I recently went on Metrogel-Vaginal for bacterial vaginosis. My doctor instructed me to use it twice a day for five days and then once a day for four weeks to prevent recurring infections (I have been diagnosed with BV before). Has anyone had any experience with this medication, because it is making my discharge a weird consistency...kind of like melted toilet paper if that makes any sense.
Bv can come bak at any time during pregnancy
I used metrogel and it cleared my BV but because its an antibiotic. It is very common that after you finish treating your BV you get a yeast infection. That might be what you have. I would go back to the doctor and get it checked out.
I have had a milky discharge, was to BV and perscribe Metrogel for 5 days also. From the first day of use I had no more discharge of anykind, feeling bloated, slight abdominal pain and lower back pain also... wondering if you have had any kind of thick gel like "stuff" instead of a discharge following use of Metrogel?
The exact cause for the change in type of bacteria is still not known, but it is can be due to IUD’s,multiple sex partners or having intercourse with a new partner. Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin).They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams but should be used under medical supervision. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

I have had cronic bv on and off for 4 years!!!:( I seem to get it every month. I have see several doctors and all they do is just treat it for a longer period of time. It seems to go away longer when i use the gel other than the pills. I was thinking about using boric acid. I ask him about it and he said he does not really know about that treatment. Anyone have any helpful hints or suggestions??? Any luck with anything???
Hello, I Just have a few questions about BV. First off im 21 and sexualy active with my bf of 6 yrs, we have sex almost everyday or every other day.. if not he gets very frustrated with me,I on the other hand dont really mind if i get sex everyday but i do mind his frustration. I have been getting these infections usually after my period but its usually when i have sex right after my period.
I am almost 28 years old, and over the past year (give or take) I have been having symptoms of recurrent BV. I went to my OB/GYN in May, and was prescribed oral Flagyl. I took the medication, and was fine for approximately 2 weeks. I then started having symptoms of BV again. My husband travels for work, and is gone every week, but comes home on weekends. What has happened over the last 5-6 months is that one day I will be fine, with no symptoms of BV, then the next day the smell will come back.
How do people get bacterial vaginosis? The cause of BV is not fully understood. BV is associated with an imbalance in the bacteria that are normally found in a woman's vagina. The vagina normally contains mostly "good" bacteria, and fewer "harmful" bacteria. BV develops when there is an increase in harmful bacteria. Not much is known about how women get BV. There are many unanswered questions about the role that harmful bacteria play in causing BV. Any woman can get BV.
what is the medicine that you are on? BV and yeast infections can cause all kind of symptoms, and you don't necessarily need to have all of them. I just finished fighting a YI that turned into BV, and I did not have the fishy symptom either, it was awful and I had all sorts of things going wrong down there. one huge telltale sign for me was that my lymph nodes in the groin got big and very painful to touch.
Was just wondering what doctors will prescibe for you when you have BV. Thanks!!

Can I use metrodizole gel for bv and use monistat creme for yeast infection at the same time.? One during day and 1 at night? Or both at night? I know I have both I just don't know if I can insert both into vagina at same time or once in morning and other at night?
I'm assuming you mean bacterial vaginosis. I just recently was in the ER for going into preterm labor at 22 weeks. They were able to stop it & discovered it was caused by BV.
I am trying to get an appointment for my next day off for I know is BV bacterial vaginosis i need a temporary cure for this....please help.....
Hi there, I suffered from BV in my last pregnancy 3 1/2 years ago. They like to clear it up quickly in pregnancy as there is apparently a link with premature labour...that's why they checked me as I was having recurring prem contractions. I'm not sure in the first trimester as it was quite late in my pregnancy but they treated mine with metronidazole oral tablets...I know they can give you a gel type thing for it called metrogel (I think) Also stop using perfumes shower/bath products.
Hi Sarah, BV it will just keep coming back, and may go on for a few years yet, try the natural way, google bv and sea salt, you could also try bv and boric acid, on earthclinic under symptoms you find BV, and apple cider vinegar as a cure or ACV, just some other ways to try. Who knows one day you will beat it.
On the other hand, BV is believed to be caused by bacteria. BV is treated with a course of Flagyl or Metronidazole pills (or Metrogel cream) - which are oral or vaginal antibiotics (anti-bacterial drugs).
I wanted to know if anyone else has had BV in their end of week 12 beginning of week 13 so basically the end of first trimester beginning of second and been prescribed MetroGel for it. I'm kind of nervous about using it but i want myself to be healthy and having BV makes me feel anything but healthy. So I'm excited about being done with this infection but want to know if anyone has taken this medication before at this point or earlier in pregnancy and had positive or negative experience.
