Dealing with Trich.
An_252952 posted:
Last time I had intercourse was in Feb of this year. Sometime in March during and right after my cycle, I noticed a change. At first I just figured that maybe it was because I changed soaps and detergents. Being that I have sensitive skin and pretty much any thing other than what I normally use makes my skin itch. Anywho, I went to the doctor at the end of April and did a pap. It came back and I was told that I had trichomoniasis. I was pretty much devastated and angry at myself for just being so stupid. I'm already battling with depression from time to time and this only made it worse. I took the treatment for it, did everything right and it seemed to be gone for about two weeks. Now it comes and goes. It hurts so bad to use a tampon for the first day of my cycle. I read that it's not supposed to come back but I suppose maybe it never left? I'm just so embarrassed to talk to anyone about it. Even with my doctor, I feel so judged by the nurses that come in before her. And it doesn't help that these people also live in the same surroundings as I do. Any advice? Comments? Experiences? I just want this to go away

Why was the treatment not effective?

Not quite sure. I did everything right. Other than the fact that I did have a few drinks while I took the medication. But they only warn not to because of the side effects of it reacting with the medicine. Only other reason I could think of is using the same bath sponge the week after. But I don't they it can live that long outside of the body. Or maybe my bday rejected the medicine.
