Trichmoniasis is a curable sexually transmitted disease, but to cure this you must see your doctor, it will not go away on its own. It produces a smelly discharge in women while symptoms in men are less visible and some men do not get any symptoms at all.

With Metronidazole, which is what your doctor will probably give you, this should take one week to clear up, sometimes a little longer for all symptoms to go but it is 90 per cent to 95 per cent likely to be cured by taking this.

Some people suffer bad side effects from this medication, such as a funny after taste in the mouth, a loss of appetite and nausea. These side effects will go away once you have finished the course of medication.

It is important not to consume any alcohol when taking Metronidazole. This will cause severe nausea and also vomiting. As with most medication, if you vomit, you may bring it back up and it will not stay in your system, therefore will not cure you.

The other method for curing Trichmoniasis is a gel that is rubbed on the vagina. This has a much lower success rate and is less likely to cure than Metronidazole. You may be prescribed this if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients that are in the Metronidazole medication.

The best way to deal with Trichmoniasis is to not get it in the first place. Always practice safe sex to ensure that you do not get a sexually transmitted disease in the first place. Contraceptive pills and other methods protect against pregnancy, but only condoms protect against infections. So always use a condom so that you are safe from the hundreds of illnesses that can be passed on through sexual contact.

Two weeks and the prescribe medicine. Common place this female STD is usually in females over the age of 30. If you had sex with this person and will continue to do so, she must be told and treated. Left untreated it can cause reinfection to you and possible Pelvic Inflammatory disease to develop in her.

Trichomoniasis is the infection caused by a protozoan called trichomonas. Usually, it is an STD but can also be transmitted by toilet seats, damps and wet towels. It is treated with metronidazole for 5-7 days. Complete treatment involves medicines for both partners because he is carrier and symptomless. Usually, this infection is mixed with yeast. So, take treatment for yeast and Trichomoniasis together.
