After battling BV for nearly 4 months, trying natural remedies that failed, I gave in and began this antibiotic. Within 24 hours all symptoms of BV are gone.

I also had the dark urine for the first couple of days. The pill itself is super ... Show Full Comment

I have had to take this medication several times, its disgusting. It doesn't matter what I drink or what I eat, the taste lingers all day long. Also bad nausea with this medication. It works getting rid of the infection but taking it is horrible.

I have been on this medication several times for BV. I am very intune with my body & notices signs immediately.
