  • Bacterial Infection

    Let me start off by saying i have been with the same partner for 9 years. He is my only partner and this is the first time i ever experienced pain during intercourse.


    I was having pain while intercourse, burning, and noticed I had a heavier discharge. I only experienced burning while sex. I went to the gyno and was told I had a bacterial infection. I was prescribed metronidazole vaginal gel 5 times at night right before I went to bed, as I did. And, also to take probiotics to build up my immune system which I have been doing. So, I started taking the medicine on April 13th and finished on April 17th. I haven’t had intercourse yet. But yesterday, April 21 I checked to see if it still burns (by finger) and it still burns and its like a warm burning feeling (sorry to be disgusting). So I was wondering should my infection be gone or should I still wait a few days to see if the burning stops? Im really worried that there may be something more. Thanks for your help.

  • If it is BV then it could take more than one treatment. Do a search on the forum for Bacterial Vaginosis or BV and you''ll see lots of other women posting about this. It can be very frustrating, I don't blame you for being proactive about it.
