Based on the information you are having Trichomoniasis and had taken single dose of metronidazole / tinidazole and wanted to know if it is ok to have sex with your wife if she is on the same dose and if their is shot that works faster.

The single day treatment which has 2 doses of 1 gram of metronidazole is given and its mostly works.

If both of your are on the same drug with single day therapy you may start having sexual activity after couple of days of taking treatment in other words if you take medicine today it will be safe to have sex on the 2 night from today.
This is only applicable if you are on single day therapy.

If you are on 250 mg 7 days therapy then you have to wait till the dose is over.

Hope it helps, Please feel free to contact me in case of further concern.

Thanks for the query.
