I'm fully breastfeeding my 5 month old but I have bacterial vaginosis. Doctor prescribed 500mg of Metronizadole for 7 days. Is it safe to feed her?

Absolutely. There is NO PROBLEM taking that antibiotic and breastfeeding. Watch that baby doesn't develop a yeast infection in mouth or in diaper area. If so, just call doc for treatment for this. Please keep nursing- it's so much better for your baby.....! Read more...
No, but Controversia. The answer is not simple. In short, I would recommend NOT breastfeeding while using the drug. The drug is certainly present in breast milk. However, there is no evidence that the drug adversely effects your baby. Read more...

14th wk preg, hv bacterial vaginosis, it recurred for the third time, I'm rlly worried bout baby, my doc prescribed me the same metronidazol?

Hopefully. Your doc is sending it to a lab that can identify all the possible causes because there can be 6 differnet ones that can cause BV and many are resisitant to Metronidazole and in my pts often have to use Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) vag supp or vag cream, you want to get rid of BV because sometimes it can cause premature rupture of membranes in the later 2nd or early 3rd trimes which is not good.
