BV & Metrogel - symptoms are worse?

Good evening VPers;

I was diagnosed with BV on 8/14 and have been taking Metrogel intravaginally at bedtime as prescribed. While my discharge has decreased/become less..fragrant, I am experiencing a fairly constant level of pain (around a 3-4) in the vulva area, as well as mild cramping. During urination the pain is pretty intense (6), but what actually hurts the most is showering. When I shower I am not using soap anywhere near my vulva, just rinsing with lukewarm water while spreading the anatomy a bit to allow for a thorough rinse, but it hurts like crazy (about a 8).

I am a little worried, as tonight is supposed to be my last night of gel. Has anyone else had a similar experience? I am trying to figure out if I should schedule another appointment with my primary care doctor.

Thanks in advance! If it matters at all, I've had a Mirena since 4/2011.
