Customer Question

Can I masturbate while being treated for Trichomoniasis. I took 2g of Tinidazole around 3 days ago for a possible trichomoniasis infection? I am male. Can I masturbate, or will this effect the treatment, or cause me to reinfect myself?

Hello from JustAnswer.

Yes, it is fine to masturbate while being treated for trichomonas. There will be no adverse effect on the effectiveness of the drug. There also is no evidence that the trichomonas can be transmitted via the hands, either to someone else or to yourself as a reinfection.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
