MetroGel-Vaginal Dosage

Your dosage of MetroGel-Vaginal will primarily depend on whether your healthcare provider recommends using the product once or twice daily. The gel is applied using an applicator, and is used once or twice a day for five days. Do not have sexual intercourse while undergoing treatment with this medicated vaginal gel.

An Introduction to Dosing With MetroGel-Vaginal

The dose of MetroGel-Vaginal® (metronidazole vaginal gel) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, largely depending on whether once-a-day or twice-a-day dosing is preferred.
 

What Is the Recommended MetroGel-Vaginal Dosage?

The standard instructions for MetroGel-Vaginal 0.75% gel are to insert one full applicator (approximately 5 grams of the gel) once or twice a day for five days. Once-daily dosing is obviously more convenient, but some healthcare providers prefer twice-a-day dosing, with the thought that perhaps twice-daily dosing is more effective.
 

General Information on Using MetroGel-Vaginal

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with MetroGel-Vaginal include the following:
 
  • Apply this medication using the enclosed applicator once or twice a day for five days. The box should come with five applicators and instructions for use.
 
  • If you are using it twice a day, you will need to reuse the applicators (wash them in warm soapy water between uses). If you are using it just once a day, you will have enough applicators and can simply throw them away after use.
 
  • If you are using MetroGel-Vaginal just once a day, using it at bedtime is usually more convenient, as lying down helps decrease the bothersome "leakage" of the product that often occurs.
 
  • You should not have sex while using this medication.
 
  • For MetroGel-Vaginal to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or MetroGel-Vaginal dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
