    I just finished a 5 day (1 dose per day) treatment - I was worried about side effects having read other reviews, but other than some cramping on day 3 and the cottage cheese discharge (which means it’s working), I had no problems. My BV symptoms have cleared up and I’m back to my normal self

    I was experiencing really painful internal vaginal burning, and went to the Gyno who told me it was BV. The metrogel worked really well for me. I decided to go gel route versus medication bc it was longer to use and pills usually make me form a yeast infection. Day 3 of the metrogel I experienced super thick chunky discharge, but no other problems with it. The discharge lasted about 4 days after ... Show Full Comment

    Painful cramping. Just finished the last day and it’s caused daily stomach issues along with so so much discharge I’m hoping it worked, I feel better but it definitely does a number on you. Lots of burning sensations and pressure. It also leaks out all day - a lot a lot. Wear a liner of some sort or it will feel not so fresh. I’m worried about the bleeding though... probably just irritated

    After being diagnosed with a BV two months ago and trying multiple rounds of oral antibiotics with no success my Dr Rx the gel. I, fortunately, did not have the fishy smell associated with BV but intense soreness and burning during intercourse and urination. I also had a think milky discharge. Much like other experiences the first day using medication only slightly burned along with mild cramps. O ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    According to my doctor I was diagnosed with bv - the first time in my life. My symptoms were urinary frequency, burning, inflammation, watery discharge with no odor. He prescribed the metrogel and I asked why he would not give me pills instead as I really did not want to insert anything into such an irritated area but he insisted this was the best method. I have had no relief from my symptoms. ... Show Full Comment
