During my first antenatal visit at 8 weeks, the doctor diagnosed bacterial vaginosis and prescribed metrodinazole vaginal gel. I'm now worried that it has harmed the pregnancy.

Metronidazole is an effective antibiotic that is frequently used in pregnancy. Whilst as a general rule it is better to avoid drugs in the first trimester of pregnancy, there is no evidence to suggest that metronidazole is harmful. Furthermore, many experts would recommend treating bacterial vaginosis with metronidazole or other drugs at any stage in pregnancy, as there is some evidence to suggest that it is associated with preterm labour in certain situations.
