Can Metronidazole Gel Cure Trichomoniasis
I had sex on day 1(before metronidazole gel) and day 2 before gel. I have 5 day treatment. I stopped until I complete. Will BV cure or did I mess up ?

Males need the ORAL medication (See Precautions re: alcohol consumption.. and the female COMPLETE a COURSE of the gel......Hope this helps!
