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

The gel is extremely easy to use and while I have noticed a discharge, it was nothing alarming. I have, however, experienced the metallic taste in my mouth and EXTREME bloating and constipation while on this medication. I have had no other dietary/activity changes while on this medicine, so I assume it is due to the gel. Has anyone else had this reaction?

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?

Comment:
Main issue right now is that I can feel a ton of white clumpy waxy product way up by and around my cervix and can not remove it. It does not come out when I go to the bathroom or on pads it is like candle wax inside of me and is grossing me out. I called the doctor and they want me to come in tomorrow morning. First they told me to go to ER, but I thought that was overkill. I have used vaginal cre ... Show Full Comment
