Men are asympatomic with trichomonas infections. It sounds like you were treated, but he was not, so you got reinfected from him.

There is no way to tell who got the infection first.

But both of you should be treated 2 weeks after antibiotic treatment.

Sorry, both of you should be retested 2 weeks after treatment.

Treatment of sex partners is indicated because maximal cure rates in infected women are achieved when their sexual partners are treated simultaneously.

Why didn't the four pills work? If he doesn't have it
Health Professional: Dr. Scott, Doctor (MD) replied 8 months ago

There is a very high treatment failure rate with the 4 pills. The cure rate cure rate is about 82%.

The advantages of single-dose therapy include better compliance, a shorter period of alcohol avoidance, and possibly decreased Candida superinfection, but it does not work as well as the 7 days treatment.

You and your partner should be retested after treatment.

The rationale for repeat testing is that reinfection rates of up to 17 percent have been reported in women treated for trichomoniasis.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
