YES. There are several antibiotics that have high effectiveness against trich. Metronidazole and tinidazole are the most commonly used. Sexual partners also needed to be treated to prevent re-infection.
Agree w Dr. Fogelson. Trichomonas is relatively easy to treat. Trichomoniasis can be treated w one oral dose of Metronidazole or tinidazole. Partners must also be treated. Re-infection can occur.
Metronidazole. The best treatment for trichomonas vaginalis is an antibiotic called Metronidazole (flagyl). If a doctor has determined that a patient has trichomonas, they will write a prescription for this antibiotic.
Rx for trichomasa. Some people do not tolerate flagyl, especially the generic. Tindamax is another option, but is much more expensive than the generic flagyl (metronidazole).
Wet prep. A smear done in the doctor's office where they take a smear from the vagina and look at it under a microscope. The physician can see the trichomonas moving on the slide. Sometimes the trich are nonmotile (not moving) and it can make diagnosis a little more difficult.
Lab tests. Laboratory diagnostic tools for trichomoniasis include looking at wet mounts under microscope to find motile trichomonads, cultures, dna probe, pcr with specimens from urine, urethra, vaginal swab or cervical swab.
No. Unfortunately there is no way to know how long it has been there.
An STD. Trichomonas is a sexually-transmitted infection that can cause vaginal discharge and irritation. It may show up on a pap test, but a better test for diagnosis is to examine a swab of vaginal secretions under the microscope. The organism can be seen and treatment can be prescribed.
Sexually transmitted. Also called trich, is sexually transmitted vaginal infection by single cell protozoan parasite called trichomonas vaginalis only women feel the symptoms most of the time, itching, burning in vagina, discomfort during intercourse, yellow green discharge sometimes, rarely pain in lower abdomen treatment with Flagyl and both partners need to be treated to prevent recurrences.
Medicstion. Yes you can take your meds during your leriod.
My partner and I had contact even when I was still bleeding due to miscarriage. Is it possible cause of having trichomonas vaginalis?
No. It is possible that a severe trichomonas infection early in pregnancy could lead to a miscarriage, but intercourse during a miscarriage does not lead to a trichomonas infectuon.
Trichomonis. Is a sexually transmitted disease and has nothing to do with when you have sex or your miscarriage.
DIFFERENT. These are very different problems. Cold sores are viral and trichomonas is a cellular organism. They require different medications.
Parasite vs virus. Trichomoniasis is an std caused by the trichomonas vaginalis parasite. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus (most often hsv I but less often by hsv 2). Viruses can not morph into bacteria or parasites. Parasites can not morph into bacteria or viruses. So the answer is : no.
