Im having my treatment of this suppository.. but on my third day on treatment my husband decided to get on contact and had me wash it off just to enggage on sex.. Now i'm worried what will happen, will it affect him or it will worsen my infection? Do i have to continue using it or start from day 1 to the 7th day of treatment again?
Neo-penotran suppository contains a combination of an antibiotic (metronidasol) and antimycotic (miconazole) and is used for treating bacterial vaginosis, a yeast infection of the vagina and infection with Trichomonas.
I believe that nothing bad will happen to your husband.
You shouldnât have sex while treating your bacterial vaginosis. At least you shouldnât wash the suppository off before the sex. The suppository is soft and dissolves inside the vagina so I donât think it could disrupt the sex. Discontinuation of the therapy for one day may not worsen the infection but you can try not to let it happen again. You can continue with the suppositories as scheduled.
