Clinical and laboratory study for trichomoniasis was conducted on 1000 women. Wet smear and culture technique of vaginal swab and urine specimens revealed no significant difference in incidence of T. vaginalis amongst contraceptive users, antenatal subjects and gynaecological patients while low incidence was observed in post natal and infertility subjects. However, in contraceptive users significantly higher incidence was found in women with tubal ligation and Copper-T users than Nirodh users. Symptomatic subjects had higher incidence and in contraceptive users positive subjects were mostly symptomatic (86%). Majority of asymptomatic carriers had no clinical signs. There was no statistically significant difference in isolation rate from male contacts of symptomatic and asymptomatic positive women. Significantly higher isolation rate was observed with culture technique and excellent cure rate found following metronidazole therapy.
