How long should it take for Metronidazole to start working?

Hi everyone, I was diagnosed recently with BV and I have been prescriped a 14 day dose of 400mg Metronidazole. It’s my 6th day taking the medicine and I still have symptoms. I read online it should take 3-4 days for the 7 day course of Metronidazole to relieve symptoms, is it any different from the 14 days course or am I just being impatient? I’ve never had BV before so I’m not sure what to expect.
Thank you!

I have only had BV one time, but the metrogel started working after the dfirst day and more by the 3rd.

I would suspect yeast has come into the picture by that time. I would recommend using monistat or at least coconut oil with a little tea tree to see if you can get symptoms under control.

Are your symptoms smell? or itch and discomfort?
