Abstract

A total of 662 samples of urine and vaginal discharge from women with and without symptoms for Trichomoniasis (STD) were examined during the period from September 2007 to February 2009 who entered the Maternity and pediatrics hospital , private clinic and laboratories in each Basrah and Thiqar Province (Southern Iraq) using TVK3/7 gene as target by PCR technique. The results shows that the urine samples has 90% of sensitivity to detect the parasite and that mean the possibility of use the urine to detect infection with trichomoniasis by PCR as use of vaginal discharge , suggesting that urinary tract get infection in rate 90% during infection of vagina
