    My dads best friend is a doctor and he told me that usually a yeast infection follows after the treatment of bv so he always prescribes me the same medication as you along with yeast infection medication to put inside. Good luck!

    I've just finished my course of Metronadizole for BV and a few days ago developed an itch but no smell. Thought BV still there so tried Vitamin C tablet - had to fish it out as couldn't stand the burn - and now using BV Activ pessaries and Vagisol. No help but reading the explanation about yeast/thrush could be what is happening with me. Going to the pharmacy to get some Canestan as soon as they open. Will try anything as so desperate - itching so bad I've made myself bored with scratching. Failing that back to the docs who don't seem to have a clue or a cute for the endless cycle I have.

    Yes, this definitely sounds as though the treatment has caused you to develope thrush, this happened to me, GPs should really warn patients about this.
