Iam hoping that any of you experienced the same thing as mine. My OB Gyne prescribed me with Neo Penotran for 7 nights.

Metronidazole after plan B pill with positive pregnancy test

Two weeks ago I took the plan B pill 20 minutes after unprotected intercourse. A week later I ended up with BV (doc said the pill threw off my ph balance) so she gave me metronidazole to take for 7 days. I took a pregnancy test on the 4th day of being on the antibiotics and it's positive. Could the pill and the antibiotics be causing a false positive or am I probably pregnant? ## The chances of getting an incorrect result on a pregnancy test are very small, so it is more likely that you are actually pregnant. Have you consulted a doctor to have a professional blood test done? Metronidazole hasn't been known to cause a false positive, according to the most recent FDA reports. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. Ref: Medline Plus Metroni...

Combitic Global caplet pvt ltd is this company legit? and has anybody used their product before?

Is this company and their product good? I filled a prescription for some metronidazole and they're sugar coated and have no markings but the packaging looks correct? A little iffy about taking them. ## Hi Shane, Based on my research, Combitic Global Caplet Private Limited does make themselves out to look like a legitimate manufacturer, with locations based in Haryana and New Delhi India. They even list the following address on their webpage: 2027/7, CHUNA MANDI, PAHARGANJ, NEW DELHI-110055 (INDIA) I can't say that they aren't who they claim they are (as I haven't tried any of their products)... but for being quote on quote "one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in India", I must admit that their webpage looks like pretty lousy. I also find it hard to trust ...

I have not seen my period for six months and went to the doctor who then prescribed anaerobyl 400 for me. What is it for? ## Based on my research, Anaerobyl contains the active ingredient Metronidazole; which is an antibiotic used to treat certain types of bacterial infections.
