Customer Question
I am taking flagyl for...
I am taking flagyl for bacterial vaginosis, I am taking 2 tabs, one in morning and one at night.I woke up this morning to go pee, when I looked my urine was reddish/brownish in color.This concerned me, is it due to the flagyl? Also... I am concerned because I just had a pap test done to look for cervical cancer and seeing this tinge of dark urine has scared the crap out of me, making me think I have cervical cancer.

Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now the presence of reddish or brown colored urine is less likely to be due to flagyl, because red or brown colored urine is mpore likely to be due to an infection of teh urinary tract or even due to the presence of blood in the tract. This can be due to renal stones or the infection itself. Now another cause of reddish or brown colored urine can be dehydration which is a common cause of this issue, if this is the case then simply using an increased amount of plain water would be useful. At the same time cutting back on caffeine or alcohol would be useful.

The presence of red colored urine is NOT an indication for cervical cancer by itself especially since you just had a pap test done.

Now i would recommend that you increase your intake of plain water and if that does not resolve the problem then simply get a urine analysis and culture done to start with and if necessary get an abdominal and pelvic ultrasound done as well.

But this is not anything serious which would make me worried.

Do you have any more questions?

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.
