hi,thanks for query.Just visit ER or talk to your primary care physician.You seems to have some more infection which might need something else like local treatment also.In case of severe pain other investigations like blood counts,urine and ultrasound is required.Take light diet,more of fluids and visit your doctor.Continue metronidazole.
wishing you good health.

The Metronidazole given to you is to combat the infection..Go back to ER if pain is still there, you might need another medicine to add to control infection, and a antispasmodic to control the pain in abdomen. A repeat vaginal smear should also be done to ensure that the treatment is taking its effect.
