I saw my doctor recently, due to lower pelvic cramping. After tests (and ruling out UTI), a vaginal swab came back positive for Bacterial Vaginosis. I began using the Metronidazole Gel. I know that Metronidazole TABLETS can cause horrible side effects, but my doctor said I shouldn't experience any of those by using the vaginal gel. My questions are: 1) Has anyone experienced side effects from the vaginal gel? And 2) After the first dose, my urine smell is very strong. Not a bad odor.... just an extremely strong urine odor. Has anyone else experienced this while using the gel? Thank you for any information you can give me.
Bacterial Vaginosis and Metronidazole Gel - Women's Health
Recently, I noticed unpleasant vaginal odour. So I did a Canestan home test and it showed positive for Bacterial Vaginosis. I bought pessaries, not realising they didn’t come with an applicator 🤦♀️ Then I bought a pack of individual gels (Canestan) which were easier to manage. Thankfully the problem was eventually resolved. I would have gone to my GP but it’s usually a 2wk wait for an appointment 🤨
I haven’t any experience of using Metronidazole Gel, you could type Bacterial Vaginosis in the search box to see previous discussions 🙂 xB
