**Avoid chemical irritants in deodorized tampons. Do not use douches or feminine hygiene products. Regular bathing is usually adequate to cleanse the vagina.

**Do not use perfumes on sex organs

**When on your period, change your tampons, pads, and panty liners often.

**Manage your diabetes by keeping an eye on your blood sugar levels.

**Use antibiotics only when you have to. You don’t need them for conditions like a cold, because they don’t do anything against a virus. If you don't have to, don't take them.

Trichomoniasis can also be prevented. If you are diagnosed with a trichomonal infection, your sex partner should also be checked. He or she may have other sexually transmitted diseases and also may re-infect you if not treated. Safe sex with condoms and counseling about sexually transmitted diseases are in order.
