I am extremely satisfied with the effectiveness of this medication. The only problems I encountered were headache, nausea, and diarrhea which, honestly, were worth it especially if it meant getting rid of the problem. After the first dose, I noticed that the odor was gone the following morning. This had been an on-going problem since last summer and I was getting frustrated because every test was normal. I know my body and was persistent in finding out what was wrong.

This was so easy to use and only dripped out a little bit early in the day when I got up. I took the oral form of the antibiotic first and it made me severely sick. I was so much happier using the gel. I had no side affects while taking it, the only downside was that it gave me a yeast infection. It was still way better than the side effects of the oral drug! I only had to take this for 5 days which is another reason that this was better than the oral med.

I was 20 weeks pregnant when my GYN prescriped MetroGel because of an infection. I wish there was more information about the risk to the fetus while using this medication. The pamphlet that came with the medicine offered no information of prenatal side affects and most websites advisednot to use the product during pregnany. I hope the doctor knew what she was doing. Overall the gel is odorless and easy to insert. It is clear so it is not staining my under garments

Used MetroGel for 5 days after being diagnosed with BV. I had one spell of diarrhea and the cottage cheese discharge. However, the drug worked.

Thank goodness for webMD. I started using this medication 4 days ago for BV and I noticed a cottage cheesey, very strange discharge. Wondering if this was normal, I came here searching for answers. This medication caused diarrhea for the first day but I am feeling way better. I tried oral contraceptives and they didn't work so this gel has been a life saver. They should really inform the patient about the strange discharge before use!

Ok so I go in to the doctor because I thought I had a yeast infection that otc meds wouldnt cure. The doctor says I have BV and I have never heard of this condition nor have I had problems with my lady parts. The medicine was easy to use, but the side effects!!!! Lawd have mercy!!!!! 1. Stomach cramps!!! 2. Dizziness 3. Nasty cottage cheesy discharge. I had to do more looking on the internet to find out what was going on. The discharge is the medicine getting the nasty stuff out. I have been off this med for 5 days and so far so good.

On Day 2 of treatment, got a yeast infection. On Day 4 of treatment, severe cramping, uncontrollable diarrhia, nausea, bloating. The diarrhia was the worst--I stopped taking this drug after 4 days. Side effects were too severe.
