Brown discharge post Metronidazole gel treatment
1009views
I have the same problem and I don't know why. I am going to call my doctor today and ask. I thought the bleeding would go away (stopped taking the gel 2 days ago) but today it even was alittle worse then before. Brownish/red/ little spots--"clotish" looking.

I have been experiencing the same thing after being treated for bv. I am glad I'm not alone. I was a little worried that by some freak accident I was pregnant. I haven't talked to my gyno about the issue but it sounds to me like a side effect. Or a way the body says it's fixed. Thank you for sharing your experience.

I definitely wouldn't go any higher than 5 mg. on the Valium though. Unfortunately so many of these young cowboy knuckleheads take stiff doses of benzos and opiates both at the same time, then gripe that the combo is bad, or sent them to the e.r. You got to have a chemist's mind: substituents in just
