Trichomonas Vaginalis is curable. It is treated with a course of antibiotics. Patients notice improvement in the signs and symptoms within a few days.
The antibiotics used to treat trichomonas interact with methods of contraception that contain oestrogen and progesterone so you must tell the doctor or nurse if you are using these methods so they can advise you on how to ensure you are protected from pregnancy. If trichomonas isn't treated you may be at more risk of becoming infected with HIV or passing on HIV if you already have it.
