It seems like my BV came back because of the discharge and burning. I was prescribed metronidazole gel to take at night for 5 days. I’ve taken it before and experienced zero problems, but this time I’m experiencing extremely painful burning the morning after taking a dose. It also burns when I pee. It almost feels like a UTI but the day I was given the gel I tested negative on a urinalysis for UTI, so I’m thinking it might be a side effect of the gel. The pain lasts around 4-6 hours and then completely goes away for the rest of the day until I wake up the next morning and pee. If it truly were a UTI I don’t think the pain would even go away at all, which is why I think it’s the gel. I have 2 doses left and I’m trying to bear the pain. Has anyone else experienced this is or something similar?
