It would be unusual for trich to be resistant to these medications and doses. there can be false positves for trich too.
at this point ask them to swab you again for trich as well as a gram stain wouldn't be a bad idea either. they can also send off a sensitivity test too to see if you do have a resistant type of trich.
Thanks for answer. I have had this since june 2012. Last fri when I went back to the dr they did the swab test. I got the results back today and they told me it was still positive. I’m tired of all this.
What is gram stain?
I know its uncommon for it to be this resistant but like said I have taken all the meds they told me to and no sex shower everyday even use a hair dryer down there to make sure its dry. I don’t know what else to do. Also I read that when people have this hard of time getting rid of it an option for them is to get an iv dose of metronidazole. Is that true? And should I ask the dr about that? And am I going to die from this?
no you won't die from this.
ask for a referral to an infectious disease specialist
Could it be so resistant becouse the guy gave this to me 3mo after i gave birth to are child? And could baby have gotin it becuse was brestfeeding at that time?
no, trich wouldn't be transmitted through breast feeding.
Hi, I know it’s been awhile and sorry if adding to post wrong. But this is what has gone on since earlier. I went back to dr still had it. Was given Metronidazol 500mg 4 pills for 3 days, The 3rd day I took them I passed out from taking them, went back dr still had it. So was given Tinidazole 500mg 2 pills 3 times day for 14 days. On the 3 day of taking them I was having convulsions so bad was taken to hospital. Called dr office and told them what happen and they said to keep taking them I took one dose 2 pills of 500mg and passed out from them so I called dr again and the said to stop taking them. They called in some kind of flangal not sure what it is because I have not got it yet. Also asked dr if they referred me to an infection disease person if that would help. Like you recommended and they said they would do the same thing they been doing. I also found out that since I have this if I ever get rid of it; it will come back sex or no sex. Is that true? And will this ever go away? Is there something I have not tried? I’m becoming desperate to get rid of this and it still itches and is wet but not like was in very beginning. .
at this point they need to stop throwing medications at you that are making you so sick :( Honestly, I wouldn't take anything else until you've been seen by a specialist.
here is a prior post on the false positive issue for more reading too - http://www.medhelp.org/posts/STDs/Trichomoniasis/show/1119263
