Trichomoniasis is a disease that appears due to the pathogen. They are considered to be a unicellular parasite of the vaginal trichomonas. This infection is often discussed. About her a lot of controversy. They are actively involved people, and the range of issues ranges from symptoms to high costs of treatment.

Many believe that trichomoniasis is the most common STD in the world. Some experts even believe that this disease is present in every twentieth person. And according to WHO, more people are affected. The boldest assumptions are that 90% of people have trichomoniasis, but they simply do not know about it.

Today, practicing doctors, urologists namely trichomoniasis are most often found in their patients. The disease is experiencing a real popularity. Consider the most popular statements about trichomoniasis, finding out what is the myth from this and what is true.


Trichomoniasis is secretive.

Actually, it’s true. Experienced doctors say that about 50-75% of patients do not know what they are sick at all. The immunity of people is significantly weakened because of the ecology and dynamic rhythm of life. Invasion of the pathogen originates imperceptibly, there is no response to this, called acute phase. A woman has an itch for a couple of weeks, it can be “anointed” a little, and then the troubles are simply forgotten. Meanwhile, the disease goes into a chronic phase.

To identify the infection of a normal smear is not enough.

It is necessary to carry out provocation and PCR. This is not true. Provocation of the doctor is carried out if the symptoms are lubricated. Now the methods of alimentary provocation are increasingly used instead of the gonovaccine. They include eating spicy, drinking alcohol, bathing in a hot tub. When doctors say that no smears are visible in the smears, this indicates that the tests are taken literally on the move by a whole heap. But an experienced specialist, focused on studying the sample, will never miss a pale pink beautiful large Trichomonas with its flagella in a stained smear. In this aspect, the human factor is very important. Although the PCR method is highly accurate, its minus is a low informativeness. The analysis will be positive, even if there is one dead bacterium in the scrap. So for a precise diagnosis of the disease, it will be best to do a smear and bacterial culture. The latter will have to wait, but the result will most certainly be the most accurate.

Treating trichomoniasis is very expensive and takes a lot of time.

This myth is cultivated by some medical centers, which simply profitably draw money from the client for a long time. Unfortunately in medicine, more and more commercial approach. Doctors prescribe expensive drugs, expensive physiotherapy, expensive supplements are recommended to improve immunity and so on. However, according to all international standards, in the treatment of trichomoniasis there is only one treatment option – antiprotozoal drugs. The truth here is one problem. Metronidazole drugs doctors have been using for more than 30 years and the bacteria to them have simply adapted. But there is a way out – doctors prescribe medications that have been developed for a long time, but have been forgotten because of a wave of expensive imported drugs. Doctors say that these funds are worth a penny, but successfully help. So you can defeat the disease with any means, the main thing is that there is a desire for that. To control the very process of your treatment, you need to perform bapses every 3 weeks and make a triple smear.


The disease can be picked up in the bath using other people’s towels.

This information remains unproven. In fact, it’s hard enough to imagine an ordinary woman who will rub her genitals with a wet and strange washcloth or wipe her intimate places with a towel of another person. Therefore, almost all the talk about everyday infection with trichomoniasis is a myth. An exception can be considered unless the little girls.Their mucous membranes are still completely defenseless. Therefore, if the mother is sick, then there is the likelihood of transmission of the virus through a towel or a general sheet. But for adults, this method of transmission of the pathogen is no longer relevant.

Trichomoniasis can be picked up through a kiss.

And this is the truth. The fact is that Trichomonas can also settle in the throat of a person, triggering another disease – trichomonas pharyngitis. At the first opportunity, viruses will migrate to the mucous membranes of the genital organs.

Expulsion of Trichomonas means the rapid detection of some new infection.

And this statement is true. Trichomonads are creatures that simply devour their small comrades, other pathogens of infection. As a result, when the main virus dies, small colleagues come to the front of it, and the treatment passes to a new stage. That is why in the treatment of trichomoniasis because of the indications can recommend taking antibiotics with a wide range of effects.

There is a vaccine for trichomoniasis.

If you get vaccinated, you will not get sick. It is not true. Often we are talking about solkotrihovake, which is called a vaccine. This drug is actually made from lactobacilli, which is obtained from patients with trichomoniasis in women. However, the purpose of the vaccine is quite different. With its help, the normal flora of the vagina is restored, and the medicine is used after the course of treatment of the disease itself. In its normal state, the vagina has a self-cleaning function. It allows you to resist any extraneous flora that gets there. It’s about bacteria, viruses and fungi. If the microflora is broken, a deficiency of secretory immunoglobulin A is formed in the vagina. This indicator is the best indicator of the state of vaginal immunity. The vaccine just helps the mucosa restore its functions faster. As such, the vaccine does not exist, there is simply a means that increases the protective capacity of the body. But in the case of promiscuous sexual relations, no one will guarantee that the bacteria will not enter the vagina again.

Trichomoniasis should be treated as soon as possible.

There are cases when a woman is treated for years, spiked with medicines. But her own immunity is so weak that all the efforts of doctors go to waste. Sometimes you need to stop and protect yourself from the pressure of doctors. If a sick woman does not have signs of inflammation, and antibiotics become already dangerous to the liver, exceeding the risk of genitalia, then stop taking medications. Then the doctor continues to monitor the situation, but without the use of endless medicines. Trichomoniasis interferes with pregnancy.


When people are asked about the continuation of the genus, the question is whether to treat trichomoniasis or wait? Of course, any infection can affect pregnancy. Acute inflammation can lead to infertility, rice adhesions, immunity failure in certain places and the risk of premature birth. But if the pregnancy has already occurred, then the infection may not be transmitted to the child. In amniotic waters, Trichomonas are found only in one of three cases. And if the correct sanation is performed before delivery, the woman can also produce healthy offspring. This is not a call or permission to become pregnant with all infected people. Simply, there are women who for years are treating their sluggish infection and want a child. So they need to become pregnant, without delaying this important decision for a long-term perspective.
