Vaginitis: Usually the above in combination is associated with bacterial vaginitis. You may have a resistant bacteria that is not responding to treatment.

Vag lab test due to frequent urination and bloated belly. Urine test neg. Do "moderate" pmns and "few" bacteria mean anything? Treated for trich.
Foreign language!: Lab language is like a foreign language. Pmns are 'polymorphonuclear neutrophils, ' and they are a type of white blood cell that fights infection. That they were moderate in amount may have meant that they were fighting off infection (doing their job). 'few' bacteria is probably normal. Remember that we have normal bacteria in the vagina, throat, bowel, etc. Our urine is supposed to have none. ...Read more
Can trich get into the blood stream (if you have been infected) through a scratch in the vagina? If so what happens?
Not really: Trichomonas vaginalis only stays in the genital tract, and doesn't cause disease elsewhere. In the literature, if the patient is profoundly immunosuppressed with medication or cancer, there have been some reports of other trichomonads causing systemic infection, but not vaginalis as far as I see. If your immune system is ok, you will be fine with standard therapy, scratch or no. ...Read more
Can I use hydrodrine porixide to douche or put inside my vagina to kill the oder or kill the trich infection. Just curious?
No: If one has been diagnosed with trichomonas, then one needs to take the prescribed antibiotic, flagyl, to kill it. If one has not been diagnosed with trich and there is a malodorous vaginal discharge then one needs to see a doc for evaluation as to the cause of the vaginal discharge. Do not douche with hydrogen peroxide. ...Read more

All tests came back negative for yeast, bacteria, trich, and stds but vagina still itches pretty badly. 7 days of diflucan didn't help. What can it be?
Simplify: You could have cytolytic vaginosis which is a condition where the normal bacterial flora in the vagina are shifted. Things like douching or soaps can lead to this. Watching with warm water only, wearing cotton underwear, avoiding tight pants and sitting with your legs crossed for a long periods of time can help. ...Read more
I've been having burning in rectum and vagina with greenish stretchy discharge. Been tested for b.v, chlamydia, gonorrhea, trich, uti all negative?
Can an ob/gyn mistake trich infection for a yeast infection? My doctor just looked at my vagina and said I have a yeast infection, but he didn't test
It's Possible...: By virtue of training, a doctor is more likely to be correct about a diagnosis than the patient, however this is not so in all cases. There be could masking co-morbidities, incomplete history, human error etc. All leading to an erroneous diagnosis. Discuss your concerns with the doctor. If you are still unsatisfied, seek a second opinion. Good luck! ...Read more
Itchy vagina for 1 month. Tested negative for gonorrhea, chlamydia, bv, trich and yeast. No pain, just itching. What could it be??
Examine your soap: You need to check and make sure that your underwear is fully rinsed if machine washed as the material can retain dried soap powder or liquid which will reactivate when confronted by a moist vulva. Secondly, make sure that you use only Dove, Ivory or Caress soaps on the vulva as other soaps are too harsh and can cause itching. ...Read more
My vagina itches a little bit inside but it comes and goes I had trichomoniasis last year but was treated for it. What could it be? Is it stress?
Trichomoniasis, a protozoan infection, is transmitted sexually. It can recur if both partners are not treated simultaneously.
Stress is more likely the result of your discomfort, but not the cause.
Visit your local Planned Parenthood center for evaluation, treatment and discussion of follow through with your partner. ...Read more
Probably not: Most STDs are cleared by the immune system over time. But not trichomonas, which usually persists even if symptoms (vaginal discharge, etc) improve. If you think you have trich, see a doctor to confirm it. Also test for chlamydia and gonorrhea. If diagnosed w/ trich, get treated with metronidazole (Flagyl®, generics) or tinidazole (Tindamax®). Your sex partner (s) also must be treated. Good luck! ...Read more
STDs: Trichamonas vaginalis is a sexually transmitted disease. The disease may not have any symptoms but women may have a vaginal discharge with a bad odor. It should be evaluated and treated with medications like metronidazole. Please make sure to have your partner treated as well otherwise the disease will be acquired again. See your primary physician if you suspect you have this std. ...Read more
Nope: Trichomonas vagainalis is a one-celled parasite that lives in the genital tract and is transmitted by vaginal sex (and not by oral and probably not anal sex). It does not migrate to other parts of the body. Trichomonas hominis (also called Pentatrichomonas) is different, lives in the intestine, and is normal; it causes no disease. Trich (vaginalis) is an STD, usually not serious, easily treated. ...Read more
