    I was prescribed three days of 100 mg Cleocin Vaginal Suppositories for bacterial vaginosis after having a horrible reaction to metrogel. I had high hopes for the Cleocin but, after taking two doses, it made the pain and burning I was already suffering with TEN TIMES worse. Within minutes of inserting the ovule it felt like my vajayjay was on FIRE. Then, to top it all off, the Cleocin also caused ... Show Full Comment

    While it was slightly uncomfortable to use at first, I soon got the hang of it. Used this for 7 days (seven syringes were included), around night 3 I had some stomach upset but that was the extent of the side effects. I will have another urinalysis done in 2 weeks to see if this cleared whatever infection I have/had. TIP: it's going to be obvious, but definitely make it a point to wear a pad o ...

    I have only been on this medication for 2 of the 3 days and so far I have no complaints or side effects (I am taking the 3-day vaginal suppository). The only annoyance I had was that the suppository doesn't stay in the vagina and I had to push it back in and lie down until it dissolved. Use a panty liner the next day as some of the medication will leak throughout the day. So far, so good!

    Well, the only reason the product was easy to use and the first time I use it. At first it sting only for about 15 minutes after treatment of myself. And the only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 because it's my first time useing this product. I think I give it an A-. For now I am ok.
