Brown discharge post Metronidazole gel treatment
1028views
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.
