Abstract: A controlled, randomized single blind clinical trial was conducted in women suffering from Trichomonal vaginitis. After confirming the clinical and microbiological diagnosis, the patients were divided into two groups. The patients in control group were administered Metronidazole in a dose of 200 mg three times a day, for seven days by oral route. While the patients in the test group were treated with a combination of Unani drugs, i.e. pills made of Afsanteen (Artemisia absinthium Linn.), Kabab Chini (Piper cubeba Linn.) and Bahroza (Pinus longifolia Roxb.) and capsule of Mazu (Gall of Quercus infectoria Oliv.), twice a day, for 10 days, by oral route. They were also treated with intravaginal tampon made of Barge Neem (Leaf of Azadirachta indica A. Juss.), Haldi (Rhizome of Curcuma longa Linn.) and Phitkiree (Alum), at bed time, for 10 days. The findings suggest that test drugs have been proved effective and safe in treatment of Trichomonal vaginitis.
