Therefore, apparently new infections sometimes are actually previous infections that weren't cured and need more prolonged metronidazole Rx. ...Read more

Confirm a diagnosis: If your diagnosis of "trich" was made twice and you and partner (s) were treated with metronidazole for one or for 7-10 days, your "symptoms" may be due to something other than trich. You may need a reevaluation to confirm your diagnosis and/or exclude other diagnoses. Resistance of trich to metronidazole, though very rare, should also be considered as well as other treatment options by your gyn. ...Read more
