Question: BV and Metrogel


 blissy - Wed Oct 14, 2009 12:08 pm

I just came back from my ob today for another follow up on my infection with BV. The first time they put me on Tindamax, 4 pilles a day for two days. I still have very minor irritation, so she checked it again and I am now on the vag. gel for 5 days. She didnt' give me any specifics or anything. Can you drink a glass of wine while on this? If my husband wears a condom, can we still have sex? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

User avatar Hello,
There is no reason you cannot take a glass of wine and sex is not a problem since it is not passed between male and female.

Best wishes.
