shalika,

trichomonas will not be cured by penicillin.

Flagyl (metronidazole) is recommended in a single 2 gram dose per the CDC. With the proper treatment, the tests will be negative in about a week although symptoms may last up to 3 weeks.

It is a sexually transmitted disease and is reportable.

You should always seek treatment by your doctor and not self medicate.
