Trichomoniasis Treatments

Trichomoniasis: Treatments Inroduction

Treatment of trichomoniasis infection starts with prevention. Preventive measures include seeking regular medical care throughout the lifetime. Regular medical care allows a licensed health care professional to best evaluate the risks of contracting a trichomoniasis infection and regularly test for the disease with a simple swab test. These measures greatly increase the chances of diagnosing and curing the disease in its earliest stage before serious complications occur.

Other preventive measures include abstaining from sexual activity or having sex only within a mutually monogamous relationship in which neither partner is infected with trichomoniasis or another sexually transmitted disease. Latex condoms also provide some protection when used properly.

Treatment for a trichomoniasis infection includes a single dose of an oral antibiotic medication called metronidazole. All sexual partners must be treated at the same time to ensure that they will not re-infect each other. It is also important to abstain from sexual activity until the trichomoniasis infection is completely cured and to treat all sexual partners, even if they have no symptoms.

Additional treatment, and in some cases hospitalization, is necessary if there are complications, such as pelvic inflammatory disease or prostatitis.
