Doctor :   you are most welcome . i would like to tell you the natural way as i can see that the antibiotic are having a side effect on you
Doctor :   also i highly recommend you to have orange and lemon juice . they have strong property to fight infections
User :   thank you. when i grind the basil leaves, does the juice come out straight away?

User :   i will do that to see how it works
Doctor :   thats good
Doctor :   ok now i am sure with this you will find good results ... don't forget to have lemon and orange juice too
Doctor :   now i would also suggest something and that is you should get a HIV test done

User :   i have had a smear
User :   and because everything was ok
User :   the doctor said i was fine
User :   but i will have it done
Doctor :   yes Trichomoniasis can be completely cured
