Recently had and treated yeast infection with Monistat. I went to my GYN and she prescribed a vaginal form of Metrizidanole due to my reaction 2 the antibiotic. She asked if I used it before and I said yes thinking I had. Will this give me vertigo 2?
No: Not enough metronidazole is absorbed from vagina to cause vertigo. It is not a common effect from oral use, either, unless you are foolish enough to use alcoholic drink at the same time. This is not a treatment for yeast. It is used for bacterial vaginosis (strong fishy odor) and trichomonas [watery, itchy discharge]. ...Read more

I'm being treated for yeast infection and genital herpes. I'm hurting bad still when I pee. Can u help me get some comfort. What can I do?
Herpes treatment: Herpes probably is the main cause of your pain, not yeast. I hope it is being properly treated with an oral drug like valacyclovir (Valtrex) or acyclovir. (The ointment is not effective.) If on oral treatment, the pain should start to improve within 2-3 days. In the meantime, an anesthetic ointment (e.g. lidocaine) may help. Sometimes it helps to urinate while sitting in a warm bath. Good luck! ...Read more
Treated for yeast infection, went away, yellow discharge present with fishy smell. Dr. said it's bacterial, how did I get bacterial if not pregnant?
Not related: Bacterial vaginosis is not only in pregnancy. Anytime the normal bacteria of the vagina is disturbed, by antibiotics or the changes of pregnancy, either yeast or bad bacteria can move it.

You can wait and see if it clears on its own, you can try vaginal probiotics, or you can see a doctor for med ...Read more
