... little tingling and twitching "down there" and wondering if this is normal or do I need another round of meds? how long after I finish the meds before I know if those pesky bacteria are dead
Probably not. Flagyl is one of those that is still working after you've taken all of them. Give it a few days for the bacteria to be gone and the irritation from it to be gone, then reevaluate the way you feel.
I personally struggled with this for several months and needed several rounds of meds to get rid of it. But mine was a rare case. There is a prescription gel that helps with the symptoms you could get. Soaking in Luke warm baths can help. No soap just plain water. If you are still having symptoms in a few days the only sure way to tell if its gone is to have a physical exam by your doc.
