Abstract:   (97 Views)
Trichomonas vaginitis is the most common non-viral disease that is transmitted sexually. Although metronidazole is the most effective medication for this disease, it has some adverse effects. Herbal medicines have fewer side effects and are more popular among people. This study aimed to review the plants, which are effective against Trichomonas vaginalis and their therapeutic effects. For this purpose, the databases of Scopus, PubMed, Medline, Google Scholar, SID, and Magiran were searched for the articles published during 2000-2019 by keywords, such as Trichomonas vaginalis, complimentary, complementary therapies, herbal medicine, medicinal plants, and their Persian equivalents. All in vivo and in vitro trial studies were included in the present review. The data indicated that some compounds, including eucalyptus, case, and garlic were effective in inhibiting the growth of T. vaginalis.
