Hi everyone. Recently I've been suffering with an itchy vagina, but no other symptoms. I finally went to the doctors who did a swab and sent it back. Yesterday I got the call saying there was a prescription ready off the back of the test.

I was prescribed two things, cantesten duo and metronidazole. I am assuming one was for thrush and from what I can gather, the antibiotics for bacterial vaginosis.

Anyway, I started the course of antibiotics and got horribly sick, my doctor has changed it now to metronidazole gel. Has anyone had experience with this? Not sure if it will still make me sick, should I wait till friday to use it as then its half term and will be at home if I do get sick?

I doubt the gel will make you sick.

If you don't want to risk it you can buy a non antibiotic gel to use at night in boots to help in the meantime.

You know you can't drink alcohol while on the tablets? Gel should be fine.

That's what I thought, but when I read some reviews some people said it did :/ hopefully not!
