I have taken vaginal metrogel...
I have taken vaginal metrogel 4 or 5 times before without any reactions whatsoever. I have a new prescription to take it. How likely would it be to have any reactions or anaphalytic shock to it if I take it again?

Hello -

It would be extremely unlikely for you to have a problem.

If you were to have a reaction to it, it would have come up the second time you used it, as your body would have been exposed the first time and built up antibodies and an immune response to it during the first exposure. Then the second time, your body would have tried to fight off the exposure with an allergic reaction.

The fact that you were able to get through the second (and third, fourth, and fifth) exposures without problems makes it extremely unlikely that you will ever have an issue with it.

Best of luck.

it should be safe to take it?

Yes, if you've taken it before multiple times without a problem, it will be safe this time.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
