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

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. You'll need to go back to your doctor and go for another regimen of something. 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

Vaginal itch, clumpy white discharge, no odor. Took one dose diflucan (fluconazole) yesterday. still itches and uncomfortable especially when sitting. ??

Diflucan (fluconazole) takes days: Diflucan (fluconazole) takes a few days to treat a more stubborn yeast infection. Itching indicates that the yeast is deep enough to create enough inflammation to trigger nerve endings. So if after a week, the itching does not go away, i usually recommend using an OTC antifungal cream externally to finish the job. If that does not help, see your GYN. ...Read more

Discharge after taking fluconazole?

Discharge after taking fluconazole?

Other vaginitis: Fluconazole is an antifungal medication and thus only treats yeast/fungal infections. Bacterial vaginitis, trichomonas vaginitis, or chemical irritant cannot be treated by fluconazole. Urethral discharge such as gonorrhea can be a concern here as well. I am not sure what type of discharge you are having and so can't tell what you may have. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I was taking Metronidazole for BV. Now, abnormal, large white clumps of cottage cheese-like discharge? No smell. Did I develop a yeast infection too?

Could be yeast: Cheesy vaginal discharge, without odor, is typical for a yeast infection. Usually there is itching or irritation as well, but not necessarily. Metronidazole for BV indeed can trigger yeast infections, as can almost any antibiotic. Best to return to the doctor or clinic where your BV was treated for diagnosis and professional advice. ...Read more

Is thick white pasty discharge normal after taking a course of flagyl? No itching smell or burn and,if yeast can I use Monistat OTC medicine

White discharge: kind of sounds like a yeast infection. These are common after taking antibiotics, because the normal bacteria in the vagina get killed off, leaving room for yeast growth. Monistat is certainly a reasonable try. If it doesn't work, see your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read more
