Bacterial Vaginosis Treatment while on Placebo Pills

Patient : I am on my 5th day of taking Metronidazole vaginal gel for Bacterial Vaginosis. I am on the pill Nortell 7 7 7 and I am supposed to start my period today. I usually start in the morning, but I didn't today. Instead, when I wiped earlier I noticed blood and thought it was my period. After waiting a few hours, barely any more blood came out. Does metronidazole delay periods? What could the cause of this be?
