Is it possible not to acquire Trichomonas Vaginitis through Sex?

It is possible:
"While trichomoniasis is usually passed sexually, it may be picked up from contact with damp or moist objects such as towels, wet clothing, or a toilet seat, if the genital area gets in contact with these damp or moist objects."

How likely is it to spread trichomonas if you use a condom everytime you have sex?

Since last being tested, I have used a condom whenever I have sex and it's been used properly. I just saw website that says that the trichomonas parasite can live up to 45minutes outside of the body and you can also get it from damp or moist things. I am trying to determine where this could have come from since I have been sexually protected.

Very possible. A condom does NOT protect against STDs. At best, it protects 70% which is really more likely to be 50% or less in real world situations. STDs are in studies able to pass through the pores in condoms in many situations.  (+ info)

My girlfriend has vaginitis what should i do?

My girlfriend went to the doctors yesterday for an STD test. She later found out that she has Vaginitis. I know that there is different forms of this and that is not an STD, anyways, we started to have unprotective sex about a month ago. That is when she said that she started to have white discharge and it wasnt until last week she started to bleed during intercourse. Can this also be assoicated with gonorreha?

The vaginitis probably had her tissues so raw, she bled. I suggest not having sex until she gets better. The STD panel would have shown if she has gonorrhea or not- vaginitis is a common, though very unpleasant infection.  (+ info)

Can men be harmed from having sex with someone who has vaginitis?

If a female is on medication for vaginitis, and her and her partner have sex without a condom, can this cause any problems to the male? or the female?

The male can get "vaginitis," but it's rare. The germ has to enter the pee hole, stay inside and multiply.

Since "vaginitis" causes itching and swelling, sex feels very good. But a few minutes later the female has a burning sensation.  (+ info)

what is vaginitis and how does it differ from other genital conditions?

also, is it contagious? if so is it still called vaginitis when contracted by a male?
so is vaginitis a broad term used for inflammation caused by any sti?

Vaginitis is a condition of inflamation of vaginal lining and inner labia that is a result of infection or alergic reaction. It's called vulvitis when it is a vulval inflamation. Yes, it is a major symptom of STIs like chlamydia.

No it isn't called vaginitis when males have inflamations from STIs, that's a good question! Men of course get genital inflamations too and they are named after the specific inflamed area. For example, balantitis is the medical term for inflamation of the tip of the penis.

Edit: it's commonly used as a term for vaginal inflamation but it's more specifically a term for inflamation of vaginal membrane tissue. It's not always caused by something sexually transmited but it's usually from an infection.

That's why it can be so serious because the infection can spread to the uterus and oviducts with bad complications and cause scarring and infertility.

But an inflamation itself may just be from an alergic reaction (like soaps, sprays, detergents) or an irritant like a tampon drying you out. I think pregnancy can make you more susceptable to vaginitis because of the hormonal changes and birth controll pills can.  (+ info)

Can you get Trichomonas from just rubbing contact on the outside of the vigina with no penetration?

A girl I have been seeing told me she has been diagnosted with trichomonas. She told me it had to be from a guy that she fooled around with about 7 months ago. She said he did not penetrate her, only contact was on the outside of her vagina. Can this be transfered that way or did they have to have had sex?

Yes, Trichamonas is a sexually transmitted parasite but it can be transfered in the manner she has described to you.  (+ info)

Safe bacteria similar to those causing vaginitis?

I am doing an experiment looking at treatments of vaginitis. I need a bacteria similar to any that cause any of the different types of vaginitis, however it must be a safe one that can be used in a school. Can someone help. THanks.

This is not available.  (+ info)

If you have bacterial vaginitis does your partner need to be treated?

My doctor stated that I have bacterial vaginitis. It is not in the class of the yeast infection or trichomonis.I was wondering does my partner need to be treated as well or is it not harmful to men.

Once I went on antibiotics for strep throat like three years ago and as a side effect I had horrible yeast infections followed but BV infections for like 6 months. Never in that time did my boyfriend (now my husband) have to get treated. Men can get those infections, but it's pretty rare. Personally, I wouldn't have sex while you have the symptoms of infection, the friction could cause little tears and could make your infection worse.

Good Luck, and I hope you feel better soon!
