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. Flagyl is the correct medication. About 20% of people will catch it again within 3 months of treatment so be sure your sex partners are treated too. ...Read more

Trichomonas: 2 gms of Flagyl is typically given for trichomonas as single dose and it should work promptly.

Is it ok to take a generic metronidazole for my bacterial vaginosis? Or should I take a branded one like flagyl?
Are you a guy?: Flagyl is a brand name for metronidazole, so you are (or she is) taking a single antibiotic. Theoretically, metronidazole & other antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of oral contraceptive, altho the chance from this specific antibiotic is very small. If your (or her) period is late, I recommend a pregnancy test. Best wishes. ...Read more
