I'm currently taking metronidazole I had sex while taking the medicine but im currently using nexplanon could the metronidazole affect the nexplanon?

Possibly: There's a lot of evidence for and against this combination causing your Nexplanon to be less effective so when this occurs I would recommend to use backup until you finish your metronidazole just to be safe. Always good to be safe, right?? Best wishes to you. ...Read more

How long after finishing metronidazole treatment, can I have sex again? Protected and/or unprotected.

It depends...: ...on what you were being treated for. Metronidazole is used for various infections. If bacterial vaginosis, avoid sex for several weeks, or have only condom protected sex for a few months (probably more practical). If your partner also is female, she needs BV treatment before resuming sex. If trichomonas, your partner (M or F) needs Rx before you resume sex with him. Follow doctor's advice. ...Read more

Vaginitis: Metronidazole is used to treat both bacterial vaginitis and trichomoniasis. You should be able to have sex immediately after completing the therapy. One word of caution. The latter is a sexually transmitted disease, and your husband may be an asymptomatic carrier and if he was not treated (assuming that is why you were taking this), you may become reinfected in short order. ...Read more

I've been on metronidazole for a week until yesterday at noon. I also take tri estarylla, I took both meds. I had unprotected sex will I get pregnant?

Probably not: The only antibiotic that has ever been proven to decrease birth-control effectiveness is Rifampin--a drug used to treat tuberculosis. There are theoretic concerns about other antibiotics and you will see these concerns in print all over the internet but In practice, most common antibiotics such as Metronidazole don't affect birth-control effectiveness. Most likely you will not get pregnant! ...Read more

Wait 1 cycle: Most women will ovulate 14 days before the onset of their next period. So if a woman has a regular 28 day cycle, she is most fertile on day 14. If you are taking any prescription medication, it is best to wait 1 cycle before trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

I'm currently on metronidazole gel. My last dose is sunday night. I want to have sex with my bf monday is it ok if I douche the white clumps out?

No: The vagina like a self cleaning oven takes care of her own "issues". However, if you douche, you will wash out the effects of the "good bacteria re-establishing themselves" after treatment and re-create your previous infection. ...Read more

I am on metronidazole for BV. I only have two pills left. I had unprotected sex last night, and now I'm having a thin brown discharge. Is this bad?

I had unprotected sex on the last day of taking metronidazole. Do I have to go to my doctor to start the treatment over?

I had unprotected sex on the last day of taking metronidazole. Do I have to go to my doctor to start the treatment over?

Depends...: What type of infection? Same partner? Was/were your partner (s) and his/her partner (s) treated as well (I hope). Otherwise you're back at square one. I would absolutely go back just to be on the safe side and get something called a TOC (test of cure). It's what is supposed to be done all the time anyway. Will give you the answer for which you are looking, and will determine whether you need meds. ...Read more

I'm taking metronidazole for gardnerella vaginalis for 5 nights. How long after should I wait to have sex? Could my partner have the infection also?

Bacterial Vaginosis: Gardnerella Vaginalis is the organism involved in bacterial vaginosis. There is a possibility your partner may have it as well and I recommend having your partner tested.

Oral metronidazole therapy (flagyl) is commonly for 7 days. After the 7-day treatment course you should be able to have intercourse without posing any risk of infection to your partner. ...Read more

Okay so I was taking metronidazole for a uti a couple of weeks ago, and I had unprotected sex (also drank alcohol) which was right after my ovulatin?

Was he treated?: Was your partner also treated? If not then you have likely reacquired the infection. Both partners should be treated and then avoid intercourse for 2 weeks. I generally recommend couples get retested so we can be sure it is gone but that is not necessarily the standard of care per the CDC guidelines. ...Read more

I have giving my male partner metronidazole to treat Chlamydia. Is he cured, because he has taking it for 7 days? Should I have sex and oral sex?

I have giving my male partner metronidazole to treat Chlamydia. Is he cured, because he has taking it for 7 days? Should I have sex and oral sex?

Won't fix it: I can understand you using some left over med to treat someone for what you assume is the problem but if it is chlamydia, metronidazole is not going to cure it. This is a good question to ask, and it points out the confusion over std's.Meds that cure one don't cure all. And without proper diagnosis and treatment you can end up sterile when you get chlamydia because of the shortcut.. ...Read more

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?

Yes: To really get the problem under control you and your partner need to be treated SIMULTANEOUSLY since you can give the infection to him/her and keep it going back and forth. Males need the ORAL medication (See Precautions re: alcohol consumption. and the female COMPLETE a COURSE of the gel......Hope this helps!
