I was diagnosed with BV about a two months ago and I was given Clindesse. I was diagnosed with BV again after everything has cleared up but this time my doctor prescribed a 7 days dose, 3 times a day of metronizdole orally. Although the "smell" is gone, I still have minimal itching but I have a new discharge. Its not runny like before. Its thicker and consistency is more like a glue, sticky texture. Is this normal or may a result from the medication or maybe the BV hasn't left. Because I forgot to take my medication over the weekend so I still have 3 days left before I'm finished. what could this be?

There may be a secondary vaginal yeast infection so will need anti Candida medication. Creams containing miconazole or clotrimazole are often used while an oral agent like fluconazole can be prescribed by your family physisican.
In general, it is important to finish all antibiotics. So, finish the metronidazole and follow up with family physician.
Hope this helps.
