I just finished a 5 day course of Metrogel (brand name metrodinazole) for a possible case of BV. I've been having almost non-stop spotting since my paraguard IUD placement 4 months ago, so we are trying to treat all other possible causes of the spotting before doing any major tests like an ultrasound. Back to the point... the metrogel has resulted in brown, sometimes slightly bloody, clumpy discharge - at times it looks like pieces of actual tissue mixed in. Is this normal? From what I could gather, most people experience white lumpy discharge, and that is not what I'm dealing with.
I don't have any discomfort - no pain, tenderness, itching, or noticeable odor. Just not sure what's going on. I do have a history of asymptomatic yeast infections, so I suppose it's possible the antibacterial gel caused a YI?
One more question, how long should I wait after finishing the Metrogel treatment before I take a Diflucan pill, just in case it is a new yeast infection?
