Keeping this in view, can you treat trichomoniasis at home?

There is no home treatment for trichomoniasis (trich). But you can lower your chances of getting trich or other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) by making careful choices about sex. For example, you can make sure to always use condoms during sex. For more information, see the topic Safer Sex.

Likewise, how long does it take for trichomoniasis to go away without treatment? You're typically cured in about 7 to 10 days, but check with your doctor to know for sure. It's not uncommon for people to get another trich infection a few months after treatment. So make sure you don't have sex again until you and your sex partners are cured and your symptoms are gone.

Simply so, how do you treat trichomoniasis without going to the doctor?

To date, antibiotics remain the most effective treatment for trichomoniasis.

  1. Black tea. Researchers in a 2017 study tested the effects of black tea on trichomonads, including the parasite that causes trichomoniasis.
  2. Hydrogen peroxide.
  3. Garlic.
  4. Apple cider vinegar.
  5. Pomegranate juice or extract.
