Can I get trichomoniasis from oral sex? My boyfriend and I took antibiotics for it last monday and we had oral sex Sunday, a day before a week passed

Many women may not have symptoms at all. It is the most common std, but easily treated if correctly diagnosed etc... So, if you have concern, consult your doc... Good luck.

Is it possiblle to spread trichomonasis after been treated with antibiotic for an yeast infection a few days after the treatment I was treated for a yeast infection with metronidazole vaginal gel0.75 but when my test result can in it said I had trichomona

Good: Good news! yeast infections are not treated with Metronidazole gel - trichomonas is, so you were already treated for trichomonas. There is a chance you could spread it if the treatment did not work, so if you are still experiencing symptoms, let your doctor know.

Can trichomoniasis be treated w/o a dr. Office visit?

Can trichomoniasis be treated w/o a dr. Office visit?

Yes: Trichomoniasis can be treated without a doctor's office visit, but it usually requires an office visit to make the diagnosis. Trichomoniasis is diagnosed by seeing the parasite under a microscope. If you know for sure that you have had sexually intercourse with someone who had trichomoniasis and you have symptoms, some doctors would treat you without a visit. Try a doctor on HealthTap.

My now ex bf was treated for trichomoniasis, I just needed to know if using a zpack would take care of it?

No: Zpack is not a recommended treatment for Trichomonasis. While it is the most common STD in the US. You should get a culture yourself to see if you are infected.

I was treated for trichomoniasis and now im bleeding is there something wrong?

Inflammation: Trichomonads can cause inflammation of the cervix causing bloody discharge. If the bleeding is period heavy, further evaluation by your gynecologist may be warranted. Remember that your partner needs to be treated!
