Day 5 and I have only had change in urine color. Had extreme smell but no discharge prior to medication.

This is my last day of taking metronidazole and it hasn't been very effective. I might have to get a stronger antibiotic and redo the treatment. So far the side affects it's given me is drowsiness, nausea, and thrush.

Waited until I got my period to ensure I was not pregnant prior to taking prescribed Flagyl & Diflucan. In the meantime I pursued natural/homeopathic and the discharge stopped by Day 1.

Also took Garlic capsules, Spirula (chlorophyll), Vitamin ... Show Full Comment
