Customer Question
hi i was just prescribed...
hi i was just prescribed metronidazole gel for five days. i am on the third day and i just experienced some vaginal bleeding
JA: Sounds like you need to connect with an OB/GYN. Knowing when bleeding is normal or a sign of something unusual, can be stressful. It's so smart to get more information. The OB/GYN I'm going to connect you with will have the facts you need to put your mind at ease. Please give me just a bit more information so the Gynecologist can help you best. For example have you seen a Gynecologist for this and if so, has there been a diagnosis?
Customer: yes i saw a gynecologist on monday for bv. she gave me the gel to use for five days.
JA: Is there anything else the Gynecologist should be aware of?
Customer: just that today i experienced bleeding after inserting the gel
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is normal.

Metronidazole gel can cause bleeding as side effect.

Also BV related inflammation can break the small blood vessels in the vagina as well.

This is not concerning.

Should subside in few days.

Are you due for your period now?
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

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.
