Treatments for Trichomoniasis

Treatments for Trichomoniasis:

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.

Discussion of treatments for Trichomoniasis:

Trichomonas Infection: DPD (Excerpt)

Your doctor will prescribe an antibiotic for you and all sexual partners you have had since becoming infected. If all current sexual partners are not treated, it is possible to become reinfected. Infants and children who are infected should be treated. (Source: excerpt from Trichomonas Infection: DPD)

Trichomonas Infection: DPD (Excerpt)

Treatment failed, is there another recommendation?

Yes. However, you may be treated with the same drug, for a longer time and at a higher dose. Your doctor may prescribe more than one drug to treat you. All sexual partners should be treated at the same time. Use a latex condom or avoid having sexual intercourse to prevent reinfection during treatment. (Source: excerpt from Trichomonas Infection: DPD)

Trichomoniasis: DSTD (Excerpt)

Trichomoniasis can usually be cured with the prescription drug metronidazole given by mouth in a single dose. The symptoms of trichomoniasis in infected men may disappear within a few weeks without treatment. However, an infected man, even a man who has never had symptoms or whose symptoms have stopped, can continue to infect a female partner until he has been treated. Therefore, both partners should be treated at the same time to eliminate the parasite. Persons being treated for trichomoniasis should avoid sex until they and their sex partners complete treatment and have no symptoms. Metronidazole can be used by pregnant women.

Metronidazole is the drug used to treat people with trichomoniasis. It usually is administered in a single dose. People taking this drug should not drink alcohol because mixing the two substances occasionally can cause severe nausea and vomiting.
