Will 7 Days Of Taking Metronidazole Clear Up Bv
Dr prescribed Metronidazole 500 mg 2x day x 7 days for possible trichomoniasis or bv. Waiting on results. Can I take 4 at once instead. ?
Not as effective: Follow your doctor's advice. Bacterial vaginosis needs treatment for a week; single dose is not effective. Even for trichomonas, a full week is best. A single 2 g dose of metronidazole usually is prescribed, but fails to cure 10% of cases. You should also have been tested for other STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia, which occur with high frequency in women with BV or trich. Good luck! ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: Without an exam it is impossible to diagnose you over the internet. That being said, BV can be transmitted back to you by your sexual partner.

After 7 days of cipro (ciprofloxacin) 500 mg, i was prescribed 100mg macrodantin for another 7 days until the culture comes back. When will i feel relief of symptoms?
Ok let me try again... 8 weeks 2 days pregnant almost finished with course of Flagyl will probiotics help BV from coming back and is it safe. Thanks!
Yes: Probiotics are safe in pregnancy. Taking antibiotics can interfer with the healthy bacteria in your intestines and cause you to be more prone to intestinal issues. Probiotics are meant to restore normal intestinal bacterial. It is possible that taking probiotics will decrease the chance of bv, but i know of no studies asking that question. Since BV comes from intestines it's reasonable to try. ...Read more

Candida glabrata?: The usual cause of vaginal yeast infections is Candida albicans. However, C. glabrata causes 10-15% of infections, and many C. glabrata strains are resitant to the "azole" drugs. See your doctor and ask about alternative treatments, such as nystatin, flucytosine, or caspofungin. ...Read more

No, but: BV is associated with a pH imbalance in the vagina. The vaginal pH is normally acidic. Seminal fluid is alkaline. Ejaculations of this alkaline material make the vagina alkaline and promote the growth of BV. This can be prevented with the use of condoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If my PID didn't clear up should I go to the ER? My dr only prescribed dyoxycicline for ten days and Flagyl 7 days.
PID: Call your doctor and discuss this. An ER is a poor place to try and resolve treatment issues begun by another physician. Your initial doctor will know the results of your prior exam and be more apt to detect changes or the lack thereof. Hope this clears up soon. Best wishes. ...Read more
