HELP: BV Treatment irritation

(1 Post)

I'm wondering if anyone has suffered the same...
I am 31 weeks pregnant and have been told I have BV. I have been given Flagyl (metronidazole) suppositories for the BV and told to use them for 10 days every evening. I am only on the second dosage but am finding them really uncomfortable making me sore and irritated to the point I can't sleep, I don't think I can do 8 more doses. I plan to go back and see the doctor however I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or even an alternative to discuss with the doctor? Or if anyone has had the same experience? I'm feeling really lost as I know BV can be particularly harmful during pregnancy.
Thank you in advance!
