Only in urine and it’s a bit sore
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
This happen only after we had sex and I had the ovule inside me
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 17 days ago.

Metronidazole ovule can cause soreness and urination issues. This will subside by the following;

1) Plenty of liquids.

2) Pyridium

3) Application of 1% Hydrocortisone cream (both of these are available without a prescription).

I wish his symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
