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.

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

I didn't get the yeast infectio ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The BV is usually caused by an imbalance of pH, I have been told. I used to get BV after every time I had sex with my boyfriend. Now, I use the metronidazole after we have sex and I have not had it for a year. I do get the white clumpy discharge, which appears about 24 hours after using the gel. I just use my finger to scoop it out and use a pure water douche to clean out the rest and have not ... Show Full Comment
