FAQ

What is TV, or Trichomonas Vaginalis?

Trichomoniasis is the most prevalent curable sexually transmitted infection (STI) worldwide. However, it is believed that many cases remain unidentified and undiagnosed.

Trichomoniasis is caused by the microscopic Trichomonas vaginalis parasite (TV).

In England, slightly more than 6,000 cases were diagnosed in 2011. In contrast, over 186,000 Chlamydia cases were reported in the same year. Over 90% of T.V. cases are diagnosed in females.

However, it is estimated that 7.4 million new cases of TV occur annually in the United States, compared to 3 million new cases of Chlamydia and 718,000 new cases of gonorrhoea. Despite being a sexually transmitted infection that is easily diagnosed and treatable, TV is not a reportable infection and its control has received relatively little attention from public health STI control programmes.

Usually, symptoms of tetanus develop within a month of infection, although up to 50 percent of infected men and women do not exhibit any symptoms.

Because the symptoms of TV are similar to those of numerous other STIs, it can be challenging to diagnose.

This parasite primarily infects the vagina and urethra of females (tube that carries urine out of the body). The urethra is the most common site of infection in men, but the head of the penis or the prostate gland (a gland near the bladder that helps produce sperm) can also become infected.

TV is typically transmitted through unprotected vaginal sex (sex without a condom) or finger insertion. It could be transmitted by sharing sex toys if they are not cleaned or covered with a new condom. It cannot be transmitted through oral or anal sex, kissing, hugging, sharing cups, plates, or cutlery, or through contact with toilet seats.

To watch television, you do not need to have had many sexual partners. Anyone who is sexually active can catch it and pass it on.

What symptoms do women exhibit?
An abnormal vaginal discharge that may be thick, thin or frothy and yellow-green in colour. It may also have a strong, unpleasant fishy odour.

Pain or discomfort during urination or sexual activity.

In addition to vaginal discomfort, inflammation, and itching, the inner thighs may also become itchy.

The genital inflammation caused by TV can increase a woman’s suseptability to HIV infection if she is exposed to the virus. TV viewing may increase the likelihood that an HIV-positive woman will transmit the virus to her sexual partner (s).

What are the male symptoms?
Pain during urination or ejaculation, as well as an increased need to urinate.

Penis discharge and/or pain, swelling, and redness around the penis head (balanitis) or foreskin (balanoposthitis).

BV stands for bacterial vaginosis.
Bacterial vaginosis (BV), also known as gardnerella vaginalis, primarily affects sexually active women, but it can also be found in non-sexually active women who disturb the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina through excessive use of feminine hygiene products and strongly scented soaps. Often asymptomatic, the infection may cause a foul-smelling, greyish discharge in women. There is a small chance that, if left untreated, the infection could result in serious health complications such as miscarriage or pelvic inflammation.

A woman can transmit the virus to another woman during sexual contact, but male partners do not require treatment unless their female partners exhibit symptoms.

Although men can test positive for BV because the virus can colonise in the urethra (the tube that connects the bladder to the outside of the body), it does not cause any symptoms and there is no evidence that men can transmit it to a partner.

 

How is the antibiotic effective?
The generic name for metronidazole is also the brand name Flagyl.

Metronidazole belongs to the nitroimidazoles class of antibiotics. It inhibits bacterial DNA synthesis, thereby preventing the replication of bacteria and protozoa and halting their growth. Then, the body’s immune system will eliminate it.

How should I use it?
There are two available dosages:-

Metronidazole, 2g orally, in a single dose or 400mg twice daily for five days. Both treatments are equally effective, but the single dose is more likely to cause side effects, the most frequent of which are diarrhoea, nausea, and abdominal pain.

Ideally, the tablet(s) should be taken during or after a meal and swallowed whole, not chewed or broken, with water.

Alcohol should not be consumed while taking antibiotics or for at least 48 hours after treatment has ended. This is due to the fact that alcohol can cause antibiotics to induce severe headaches, nausea, and heart palpitations. Despite this, the antibiotics would continue to be effective.

What are the adverse reactions?
More common side effects:-

Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea are symptoms of the flu.

Taste disturbances

loss of hunger

Velvet tongue

Some extremely rare side effects include:

Jaundice

Drowsiness

Dizziness

Headache

Myalgia

Visual disturbances

Itchy skin and rashes
