Scared to go to doctor but would metronidazole vaginal gel cure gonorhea? I had it prescribed to me because I had a bacteria infection about a year ago and sometimes get them quite often but have not had one since last year.

I'm not sure why your scared to see your doctor, but this comment always worries me, since establishing a good relationship with a treater that you trust is really important.
No, metronidazole won't treat gonnorhea. If your having urinary or vaginal symptoms, you ought to let your healthcare provider know. BY
not taking meds.
