Trichomoniasis that will not go away! Please help!

Posted , 7 users are following.

In October I had regular checkup after roughly a month of itching, a smell that increasingly worse as the weeks went on and have discharge. I was told I had trichomoniasis and I was put on 1 round of metronidazole where I took 4 pills all at once. I felt fine for a day and then the symptoms started coming back. I went back and got another checkup and it was still there. I was then prescribed metronidazole again but two doses, 4 pills one day and another 4 pills two days after. This still did not work. I was then prescribed a metronidazole cream that I had to insert for 5 days. Same thing, I was fine for a day or two and it came back. I just went to the OB again and it still did not go away. I was prescribed metronidazole again but I had to take 4 pills a day for 5 days. I really thought It was gone and went 4 days feeling ok but tonight I feel the itching coming back. I was also prescribed a yeast infection pill just in case the antibiotics brought one on. Has anyone heard of this happening?? Could the doctor be mistaken or is there anything else I can do to get rid of this??? Please help! This has got me so depressed! I have not had sex with anyone since September. Is there anything else that could cause me to be reinfected?

      No a weird question at all:) No I do not use one. I feel the doctor thinks I'm having sex but I swear on my life I have not. I was thinking could it be my pubic hair as I do not shave, or my wash cloth or towel? I change it every week but should I change towels every day while I'm taking the meds?

    I think it's a little strange how quick your results are coming back, because just from a little Google search, it's saying the results typically take 24-72 hours to show up. I've been diagnosed with chlamydia and I believe it took about 3-5 days for them to get back to me. And beyond that. I've had severe BV before, like to the point where I would wear pants or underwear for all of 10 minutes and they would smell horribly or if I went to work, at the end of the night, I could smell myself from a standing position. Which I believe was treated with a few doses of clindamycin and that helped. if the antibiotics aren't working, which is very strange considering out of all antibiotics to have some type of resistance, that sounds a little off. if you do have BV, it's a slippery slope sometimes as it is often reoccuring and can lead to PID if left untreated for long. And you'll mostly face a yeastie and that at the same time. after showering, keep the area dry, like extremely, BV thrives on moisture and if you like yogurt, I'd start eating something with probiotics from all the medicine you're taking, which also helps. I hope you get an answer to your problem soon and disregard me completely if this doesn't help.
