I started Metronidazole vaginal gel three days ago while on

Customer Question

I started Metronidazole vaginal gel three days ago while on my period. My period ends today but I'm seeing clumpy brownish red discharge. I'm wearing a panty liner which is clean but when I wipe I see dark red blood and this clumpy discharge. I don't feel pain or have the fishy smell anymore. Is it normal to still see blood and this clumpy discharge while on Metronidazole? I have two more days of this antibiotic. I've used it in the past but never while on my period.

Yes I think it is just the mix of blood from your cycle mixing and coagulating due to the gel . I think it is nothing to worry about.
