Does metronidazole penetrate the prostate?

To anyone who has ever had prostatitis due to trichomoniasis, does the drug metronidazole penetrate the prostate and clear the infection?

I keep reading that the prostate gland is very difficult for antibiotics to penetrate.

Does anyone know if metronidazole penetrates the prostate and gets rid of trichomoniasis?

Thank you

I was diagnosed with Trich after being infected for well over a year with it.. when finally treated with metronidazole it did clear up the infection but I think becuase it went untreated for so long it did permanent damage to my prostate....  but yes it should effectively treat the infection

Hi and thank you so much for your response,

Why do you think you have permanent damage to your prostate?

Do you still have symptoms of prostatitis?

Thanks
