I have recently finished my 5 day gel treatment two nights ago. I still have to wait to make sure this fully cured me because you should wait 3 days for it to get out of your system.

However, I was relieved when I saw the chunks, because I instantly thought this was the bad bacteria the medicine had ... Show Full Comment

Been using the gel for 2 nights. Still lots of irritation and discomfort but no terrible side effects except breast tenderness. Does this make sense? I'm menapausal so no danger of being pregnant... has anyone else experienced this side effect?
