Slimy brown discharge and bad odor after BV treatment. STD free. Not like normal spotting for me. Finishing Flagyl tonight. Started during yeast cream?

Not uncommon: Unfortunately, BV is not as well behaved when treated as other vaginal infections. Not uncommon for the infection to return shortly.

If it's malodorous and slimy as you describe then, I would get that cultured and make sure there is an antibiotic sensitivity done as well. Questions? www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi ...Read more

Bacterial vaginosis, an overgrown of vaginal bacteria, is a common cause of discharge with odor, but STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichoonas) also can do it and could cause positive urine nitrite and LEU. See a doctor ASAP for testing. Good luck! ...Read more
