Taking metronidazole and white creamy discharge is normal?

Yes and No: If you were prescribed this medication for bacterial vaginosis (bv) and your original symptoms have improved but now experiencing a white creamy discharge, then you may have a yeast infection due to this antibiotic wiping out its competitors by ridding you of bacteria. In this case it would be a normal effect of the medicine. If not, then you still need to see your doctor to confirm. ...Read more

I had metronidazole Flagyl 2grams last 2days ago. But I still have this vaginal discharge. When will I see the effect?

Trichomonas: 2 gms of Flagyl is typically given for trichomonas as single dose and it should work promptly. If after 48 hours there is no effect, I doubt the diagnosis of trichomonas without something else like bacterial vaginosis, and if it still is trichomonas an extended course of Flagyl, e.g., 7 days, may yield results. ...Read more

Finished pill prescrip of metronidazole for trich 2 weeks ago, discharge still smells - have remained abstinent for month - what's going on??

Bacterial vaginosis?: Two good bets: Single dose metronidazole is only 90% effective against trichomonas, i.e. a 10% chance you still have it. Second, trich often is accompanied by bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal vaginal bacteria. Both trich and BV cause discharge with strong (often fishy) odor. BV is treated with metronidazole 2x daily for a week and would cover both infections. Check with doctor. ...Read more
