Customer Question

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.
