Waiting time?: Was your anticipated partner with whom you acquired the infection treated as well? Was the Flagyl dose 2000 mgs for a stat dose?

Is there anyway I could buy over-the-counter medicine to cure trichomonasis , also Is there any medecine I could take besides metronidazole pills?
No otc treament:
Sorry, but there is no over the counter treatment for trichomonas in the United States. Both men and women can have trichomonas infections. Treatment is Flagyl (metronidazole) or tinidazole. There aren't many other choices and these are more toxic and less effective. Using condoms can prevent infection.

Can trichomoniasis cause bacterial vaginitis or keep it reacurring? I'm wondering if I have it. My BV won't go away after 2 unsuccessful treatments.
Keep working on it: Even without trich or anything else, BV often keeps returning; it can be difficult to cure once and for all. Keep working with your doctor about additional treatment options. Trichomonas doesn't cause BV to recur, but it's reasonable to be tested to be sure. Probably that was done, but maybe only by microscopy of discharge. Ask your doctor about the newer and much more accurate trich DNA test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
