    I'm 44 and this is my first time experiencing BV. I noticed BV and after 2 weeks I finally went to the Dr. It's an embarrassing condition, ain't it Ladies?! I tried natural remedies (Apple Cider Vinegar, Tree Tea oil) but those did not work. I'm on day 4 using Flagyl and the smell has gone away. Thankfully up to now, I have not experienced any of the side effects listed in the comm ... Show Full Comment

    I'm on Flagyl 4x day for 10 days. I don't know if it was mind over matter or the medication but I felt symptom relief after the 2nd pill. I personally haven't had any side effects but the taste of the pill is unbearable. I recommend yogurt when taking the pill because it helps somewhat.

    I was on 400mg 3 times a day and experienced most of the side effects. On the last day I had stomach pain and diarrhea so I decided not to continue with it. Not sure if the bad bacteria was gone. I would never take this medicine again.

    I have to defend the "bad taste" crowd because it was never the actual taste of the pill for me and, I didn't get the constant, stomach churning, salty/soapy taste until the last day but I stopped taking it a week ago and the taste hasn't diminished a bit and its bad enough that its making me nauseous. That said, I know it will eventually and that infection wasn't going to g ... Show Full Comment
