Question: Trichomoniasis and Oral Sex

 laurahughes2006 - Tue Mar 25, 2008 12:50 pm

My boyfriend took the medication metronidazole, the one time dose, on Friday. I realize that we can not have unprotected sex for 7 days. I gave him oral sex last night. Should I be checked again for trichomoniasis?

User avatar Hello,
If your boyfriend completed his prescribed treatment and symptoms are gone you are probably safe. But, if you have symptoms you should see your doctor for treatment.

Best wishes.
