|4||Gardnerella||Mild vaginal itching when the body discards the medication in the morning. On the 3rd day i had a glass of wine, no side effects whatsoever.||My doctor did not mention any side effects; when i read up on the meds i was horrified. So far, i have not experienced any side effects. The itching is annoying since this was the reason i saw the doctor in the first place. I am taking supplements to not destroy the good bacteria during this treatment. For anybody that likes a glass of wine. So far so good. I just had my first.||F||51||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|| |
