The STD trichomoniasis (also known as trichomonosis or trich) is not only treatable, but curable. Metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax), the most commonly used antibiotics for trichomoniasis, can easily cure the infection in one dose.
Trichomoniasis symptoms often mimic gonorrhea or Chlamydia symptoms. A trichomonosis test is the only way to determine whether the infection is trich. It is important to receive an accurate diagnosis to ensure proper treatment.
All sex partners should have a trichomonosis test and treated if positive. It is important for people with trichomoniasis and their partners to abstain for sexual intercourse until treatment is completed to avoid re-infection. A confirmatory trichomonosis test may be recommended following treatment to ensure the infection is fully cured.
