In brief: See Doctor

If you have being taking Metronidazole as prescribed and still not feeling better, you need to see your for re-evaluation.
Typically Metronidazole will treat a bacterial infection and you will need an anti-fungal to address the yeast infection. You may need test to identify the offending bacteria before selecting appropriate antibiotic. So please see your doctor for re-evaluation and care.
