Using Metronidazole Gel

How to use Zidoval

You need to use metronidazole gel for five consecutive days in order to cure your infection. Your pack of metronidazole gel comes with an applicator, which is easy to load and insert. You need to use it in the evening, before going to bed, to allow the treatment to work overnight. The applicator comes with detailed instructions, which you need to follow carefully. Each application consists of approximately 5 grams of metronidazole gel.

You cannot use the applicator during your period, so you will need to opt for an oral treatment if you experience bacterial vaginosis during your monthly bleeding. Alternatively, you can discuss delaying your treatment with your doctor.

It is important that you complete the course you have been prescribed, otherwise your infection is likely to return.

It is recommended that you abstain from having sex while you are undergoing treatment for a vaginal infection.

You should avoid alcohol during your treatment, as it increases the risk of certain side effects.

Before using metronidazole gel

Speak to your GP if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding as metronidazole gel may not be suitable for you. You must not use metronidazole gel if you are allergic to any of the ingredients and you must tell your prescribing doctor if you have any allergies.

Side Effects

Zidoval can cause side effects, but not everybody gets them. The side effects tend to be temporary and mild.

Possible side effects include:

  • headache
  • dizziness
  • irritation
  • upset stomach
  • lack of appetite or an unusual taste

In some women, treatment with metronidazole gel can cause a yeast infection. Speak to your doctor if you develop thrush symptoms such as redness and itching around the vagina.
