Can I get trichomoniasis from wiping the wrong way?

Can I get trichomoniasis from wiping the wrong way?

No: Wiping the wrong way promotes urinary infections from bacteria. Trichomonas is common in lady's mostly because changes in the acidity of the vagina. Live t. Vaginalis organisms in urine and semen samples have been found after being exposed to air for several hours. Although organisms are able to survive for hours on damp towels and clothes of infected women, it's unlikely to get it like that.

What do it means when you wipe yourself and it's like brown yeast I'm currently taking Clindamycin Can that cause it and can you get Trichomonas t?

Probably not yeast: Presumably you mean brown vaginal discharge, not anal. Clindamycin could trigger a vaginal yeast infection, but yeast usually causes only a little white discharge or none at all; the main symptom is irritation and itching. Trichomonas can cause brown discharge, but is an STD; you only catch it from sex partners. See doctor, get tested for vaginal infections and STDs.

If I have trichomoniasis and I don't get it cured could it turn into a serious disease?

No, but.....: Trich is an STD and needs to be treated. It is transmittable to others and will cause a vaginal smell like you wouldn't believe! So to avoid embarrassment, treat it. But it won't necessarily cause a serious problem like, say, chlamydia or syphilis or other STD's.

I tested positive for trichomoniasis, my partner went to get tested his results negative is this possible---and I have been faithful?

Yes: He still probably has them hiding in his prostate. This is the usual situation and he needs to be treated -- in fact, there's not really any reason to look for them, just treat him.

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!

Agree w Dr. Namey: Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease from a parasite called trichomonas vaginalis. Most often women become infected by penis to vaginal contact or vaginal to vaginal contact. It reportedly can infect the mouth ; anus but can not survive in those areas.

If my boyfriend has trichomoniasis and we have protected sex will I still get infected?

If my boyfriend has trichomoniasis and we have protected sex will I still get infected?

No sex for now: Has your boyfriend really been diagnosed with trichomonas? That's a very difficult diagnosis in men. I wonder whether he actually has nongonococcal urethritis, the most common of all STDs in men. NGU is often caused by chlamydia, but only 1 in 20 cases is due to trich. In any case, you should not have sex with him at all until you have been examined and probably treated. See your doctor.

Can someone get trichomoniasis by having oral sex can some get trichomoniasis by having orol sex

Can someone get trichomoniasis by having oral sex can some get trichomoniasis by having orol sex

No: Trichomonas is not known to be carried in the oral cavity, and not known to be transmitted by oral sex. This hasn't been carefully researched, so conceivably it is possible. But in my 40 years in the STD business, I have never seen a patient with trich whose only apparent exposure was oral-genital contact. In general, oral sex is much lower risk than vaginal or anal sex for all STDs.

Could males pass Trichomoniasis through semen? And who is the main carrier for it. How do females actually get this?

Could males pass Trichomoniasis through semen? And who is the main carrier for it. How do females actually get this?

Sexual transmission: Trichomonas is harbored aysmptomatically in the male prostate gland and is transmitted with sexual intercourse to the female at ejaculation who then develops itching and a vaginal discharge. Both parties have to be treated simultaneously for the treatment to be effective prior to the resumption of intercourse.
