Risk factors for vaginal trichomoniasis among women in Basra, Iraq
AbstractWe investigated Trichomonas vaginalis infection among 352 women with vaginal discharge, 46 were found to be infected, an infection rate of 13%. There were no significant differences in the isolation rate of T. vaginalis in women according to occupation, educational level, economic status, age, marital status, parity, menstrual status and contraception use. The difference in the isolation rates of T. vaginalis in women with a history of abortion [7.6%] and in women with no history of abortion [15.7%] was statistically significant

The mean duration of the first and second stages of labour were ...
