Abstract:

Trichomoniasis plays a crucial role in causing some health problems such as ectopic pregnancy, un- desirable outcomes of pregnancy and infertility.
This study evaluated the role of T. vaginalis in infertile women and assessed the relationship be- tween trichomoniasis and female infertility in unexplained primary or secondary infertilities. A total of 90 female patients suffered from infertility were examined for trichomoniasis by Giemsa stained wet mount smears, and the Modified Diamond’s medium culture as a diagnostic reference.
The results showed that T. vaginalis was 9/90 (10%) by culture method with significance with pri- mary unexplained infertility.
Keywords: Egypt, Trichomonas vaginalis, Infertility, Modified Diamond’s medium culture.
