I woke up last night with diarrhea, nausea, flank pain, fever, I have not been feeling well, is this a kidney infection? I am on flagyl, ER or not?

How do you get trichomonis vaginalis? They prescribed me with metronidazole/flagyl. Will this work to take this disease away...I want to prevent it

Sex: Trichamonas is a fairly common sexually transmitted infection. Using latex condoms will reduce risk of transmission. But the only way to "prevent" it completely is not to have sex.

I had metronidazole Flagyl 2grams last 2days ago. But i still have this vaginal discharge. When will i see the effect?

Trichomonas: 2 gms of Flagyl is typically given for trichomonas as single dose and it should work promptly. If after 48 hours there is no effect, I doubt the diagnosis of trichomonas without something else like bacterial vaginosis, and if it still is trichomonas an extended course of Flagyl, e.g., 7 days, may yield results. ...Read more
