 4  BV I've never had BV before but after noticing a fish like smell x2 days post sex I knew exactly what it was. I called my gyn and requested the gel. The gel started working immediately and the smell was gone after the first dose. The thick, wet toilet paper like discharge started day two and caught me way off guard. Really glad I found this site to see it's normal (would have been nice if my Dr knew that and had told me). It has lasted 3 days after the treatment, but has decreased a lot. This sounds gross, but if your boyfriend can stomach it- we wore a condom and had sex and it surprisingly "cleaned out my pipes". The following day I had a scant amount of discharge left and took another dose "just in case". By far not the greatest medical advice, but it worked for us. Good luck! Being a girl is rough sometimes! F 23 5 days

 5  Metrogel-vaginal The positive was that I got a very soothing feeling vaginally during the entire time I took the gel except for the 6th day. Then I started to experience burning. I got so sick on Metro Gel cream I wasn't sure I could go the full 10 days, so didn't. I also didn't fill the applicator to the top. I knew I couldn't tolerate that much medication.I felt nausea the entire time. Headache. Horrible stomach cramps. Dizzy. I only stayed with it because it really works. I have the white gross clumps of discharge that sure look like yeast. I would have started to take Diflucan, but haven't after reading all the wonderful posts on here. I am seeing my doctor on Monday to get cultures done to make sure the BV is gone, and this isn't yeast. I dread taking it again because of the side effects. I literally had to stay home, but the relief immediately from the smell and itch is well worth it if you can stand the side effects. I couldn't tolerate the pill so glad this is available. Less of both evils F 61 6 days

 4  BV Overall, the medication has worked for me. Well as far as I can tell, I am only on my 4th day. There has been no odor to my discharge. However, I have had a lot of cottage cheesy discharge. It's annoying but nothing a peanut liner can't control. On the 4th day I have had a few bouts of loose stool, this is a common side effect. So other than the cottage cheese and a side of loose stool it's been great so far. Hopefully, this discharge will rid itself quickly!! But let's just thank god there is absolutely no odor to the discharge. Tomorrow is my last day. F 22 5 days

 2  Bacteria Infection I am taking Metronidazole vaginal gel 75%. I have been on depo birthcontrol shot for nearly 2 years, and have no period. I did not get my 3 month shot in December. So my period has not came back, which is common due to the shot still being in my system. I got prescribed this medication, and evidently it has made my period come. Day1: SEVER CRAMPING for over 6 hours. Blood clotting and brownish blood lining by the end of the day. Called Dr. after 6 hours of cramping, he said it sounded like my period is coming. Well... there was no sight or hint of my period before taking this medication. They want me to come in for vaginal exam and stop meds. Day 2: After discovery of clotting and blood, figured it was period as he stated so I continued meds and didn't go to Dr. this morning. Thought possibly that it would be over due to long slimy like clotting coming out night before, but no. I am in sever pain as I type. I have taken a narco pain pill and my uterus is still k I take meds at night before laying down, and in morning before I wake up to go to work. I do not experience cramping at night or when I wake up, only after my second dose in the morning. F 31 5 days

 5  bv Migraines, CLUMPY, white discharge, bloating, gas I love this gel however it gave me horrible migraines for the first 3 days ( i was doubling up on treatments, used morning and night first 3 days). The weird clumpy, cottage cheese like discharge started on day 2. While in this med i did drink alcohol but it did make me real drunk so be careful. I have now been off the med for about 5 days now and I still have the gross clumpy white discharge. I thought it was a yeast infection and glad I came here and saw that it is normal because I almost started monistat today! I dont have any itching so it cant be a yeast infection. They need to put on the insert pamphlet that the weird discharge is damn normal so we dont treat ourselves for a yeast infection when we dont have one!! WTF! Anyways, Ive been scooping the gross discharge out with my finger a few times a day. It seems to be tapering down today and not as bad as before. F 47 5 days

 3  BV At first I didn't think I had side effects. However, today, which is the day after my 3rd use, I feel unusually tired and nauseous. I didn't even think that it could be the meds...but then I read the reviews. Makes sense... I'm not sure what to think about Metrogel. I didn't experience the strong fishy smell, but I had itching and severe burning during urination. The itching is gone, but the really painful burning during urination is still there. Not sure what to do... I never had BV before, so I'm a bit clueless... 😳 F 43 3 days

 5  Continuous Bv The only symptom I'm having is this thick disgusting white, yellowish,pinkish chunk discharge. I'm not upset about our because the smell is COMPLETELY gone. I've been suffering continuously for the last 4+ years now. Is caused me to have my youngest child 12 weeks early. Visited a new GYN with this method saying that instead of using it one a night for a week...finish the tube. Got 3 refills so if it comes back do it again for one more tube then again once a week till it's gone. He says he gives this treatment once per patent and they don't come back with the same issue. Im thinking this time the infection was pretty bad because this discharge is relentless! It looks like a bad cold with goat cheese stirred in with a few splashes of ketchup every now and then (gross). I've had it before but it stopped at the end of the one week treatment. I'll keep using it until the tube is gone and hopefully the vaginal vomit will be gone too F 26 6 days

 4  BV I've used Metro-gel vaginal 0.75% enough in the past 21 years. I'm very sensitive in this area. ANY CHANGE EVEN IN THE SLIGHTEST I WOULD GET BV. Every time METRO-GEL has worked. Until last year, I had typical BV symptoms. Went to three different DR's and was tested for everything under the sun..including BV. ALL TESTS RETURNED NEGATIVE. BUT I KNEW THIS ODOR QUITE WELL. SO I ASKED FOR Rx of metro-gel anyway. The pharmaceutical company Walgreens had recently contracted with was Sandoz. I picked up my Rx which was 1×day @ 5 day. I used it for 5 days after day 4, the fishy discharge was still very prominent. So I contacted the Dr and had a new Rx called in to CVS. Got Rx and after 3 days of using the Prasco brand of Metro-gel, odor was all gone and I have had no issues since. Up until recently, I accidentally got some soap a little too far inside my vaginal area and within a couple of days I noticed fishy odor. I knew right away what was going on. I called my Dr had Rx for metro-gel called in. I've been using it for 3 days now out of the 7 and odor is still present. Maybe tonight's dose will get rid of it. F 39 4 days

 5  vaginitis Well I'm 6 months pregnant and went to the ER for some vaginal itching and bumps. Dr checked me out and told me that I have vaginitis. She prescribed me metro gel vaginal gel for 5 days before bedtime. Day 1: i was burning and itching so bad I thought that this medication was exacerbating the vaginitis. Day2: i slept all day. Once I woke up I was still itching and burning. Day 3: it started to feel better then I started to have a white chunky discharge looked like ricotta. Day 4: continued chunky discharge but most of the itching and burning was gone. Also the bumps that I had were almost gone. Day 5: still have a little discharge but I feel much better. Day 6: the discharge is changing so I think my body is getting better. I didn't have any cramps and I was worried for the baby but I had to take this medication. It helped me tremendously.

Second time i went in, I got metrogel and it was alot easier to use, but i still had pretty bad side effects; extremely fatigued, heavy gel like discharge especially with activity(understandle, i believe it was just the gel making its way out), drymouth, nausea, sore throat, woke up with my whole left leg asleep, trouble breathing, body aches, & i felt really moody. I would recommend this over the pill. F 20 5 days

 4  Bacterial Infection-Gardenella I think this product is helping alot! I started off by using the pill and it made me feel like complete crap and got horrible horrible side effects from it. So my doctor thought the gel would be better for me and surprisingly have had little to no side effects. All I've had is some stomach cramps, gas, ans thick white cottage cheese discharge (which is the medicine/bacteria coming out). I've also just experienced little itching as well. I know some people have gotten yeast infections from this medication but that is easily curable as well. :) hope this helped others! F 21 5 days

So I'm back on it today will be my 4th day and I was just wondering if anyone had a kinda greenish discharge come out on there pad etc? I have no smell and no more itching but noticed some green kinda thick discharge on my pad? Is this normal? Other than that I have experienced head aches but the pills taste like shit so ill use the gel anyday!!! F 19 6 days

 5  BV Worked great, the smell and discharge from the BV were gone after the first day. Also experienced the white wet toilet paper/cottage cheese discharge during and after the 5 days of using the metro gel, came across this site and felt much better knowing that this is a normal side effect because it worried me at first. For anyone who is wondering, the white clumpy discharge lasted about 3 days after I stopped using the medicine, but I also scooped some of it out with my finger. If you are not comfortable doing that, it may take slightly longer to come out by itself. F 27 5 days

 1  Bacterial vaginosis I was prescribed the gel because i had had BV a few months ago and was given oral flagyl, and because i was also prescribed an oral antibiotic for a sinus infection at the same time. With the oral flagyl, i was pretty sick through the full course of treatment. this time I experienced the full range of side effects: headache, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, cramping, gas, bloating, discharge, sinus infection, yeast infection, irritability, depression, and lethargy. Honestly, the cure has been worse than the BV. Who would have thought that a vaginal gel would pack such a wallop? Additionally, the insert says the gel's effectiveness rate is only around 50%--leading me to ask why I went through all of this for what could well be no good reason? If it doesn't clear this time, I don't know what I will do. But I know what I won't do: use any more Flagyl products! If anyone had hit on a course of preventative care for BV, or effective natural cure, please contact me. I am stick experiencing the symptom that sent me to the doctor in the first place. F 47 6 days

 2  BV White Clumpy Discharge, Cramps like menstrual cramps but they are NOT! Thank GOD I found this site. I've been taking metrogel and have had the white clumpy discharge and was FREAKING out. I thought to myself, "What the hell is this?" I didn't know if it was working or not, but turns out now I know it is a side effect of this medicine. It is incredibly annoying. I cannot have sex, I cannot NOT wear a pad, feeling so uncomfortable and it looks exactly like the wet toilet paper and ricotta cheese. Ugh. Just awful. F 23 5 days

 3  Gardnerella Devolped a discharge on my 4th day. Went to the pharmacy and got some over the counter yeast infection cream, Monistat, because i really thought it was a yeast infection (it totally looked like cottage cheese coming out of me). I took it and it burned like crazy. The next day i called the doctor, she confirmed that it is a yeast infection and gave me a prescription for Diflucan (fluconzanole). Took the first last Thursday, the discharge got better witin 2-3 days. Took the second and last on Sunday, no discharge but still a bit uncomfortable especially at night and in the mornings. Well, the yeast infection is a major side effect. Don't be fooled, it is not the meds coming out; if it looks like cottage cheese (touch and squeeze it, it even has the texture) it is yeast. F 51

Along with constant gas I have been experiencing fatigue to the point that I am nodding off at my desk after a full nights rest. I took my last dose last night so hopefully it works.
