    Hated that I had the discharge with the product and it did cause my period to come earlier than expected. Also, after seeing my primary doctor (prev going to urgent care) it was determined that I kept getting it because my boyfriend was using a soap that was too strong for my body to handle. He has since changed to a mild soap and I have no recurrence of the issue. Girls, you might want to see if ... Show Full Comment

    I was prescribed this gel twice a day for 14 days, it is the longest I have seen prescribed, but I trust my doctor. I did not notice any symptoms of BV except for minor odor occasionally.My pap smear is what identified the infection.I have only put in two treatments and after the second I noticed the discharge as most have described. I feel bloated and slightly fatigued.

From the 3rd use and on the white clumpy discharge came back but it is very mild. Im confused as to whether this is a yeast in ... Show Full Comment

    Like most people on here, I took this Metrogel for BV about three weeks after Flagyl failed to work for longer than a week. I used it once each night for seven nights in a row, as prescribed. Definitely caused bloating and BV appears gone. However, two days after finishing the gel, I now have a yeast infection which, in my option, is a lot worse than BV. So now I have to take medicine for a ye ... Show Full Comment
