Abstract: 

Background: With respect to the importance of STDs, this descriptive study was conducted to diagnose contamination and determine effective factors on contamination of trichomonas vaginalis and gonorrhea in female prisoners at Evin Jail.
Materials and methods: 151 subjects with at least one record of marriage were selected. Data collection tools included a questionnaire, a checklist, and laboratory equipment including microscope, incubator, autoclave, fore, culture media, and digital scale. Content validity was used to validate the questionnaire and checklist. The equipment was calibrated and set by medical engineers.
Sample from vaginal secretions were taken to diagnose the microorganisms. To observe trichomonas vaginalis, slides were prepared for gonorrhea; then the samples were cultured and put in slides with appropriate staining.
Results: Mean age of the subjects was 32.08 and their mean age of marriage was 16.9. %31.1 were illiterate, %70.9 were housewife, and %29.1 were employed.%26.5 were contaminated by trichomonas vaginalis but no gonorrheal infection was detected. Factors such as job, itching, burning, and redness of vulva; vaginal secretions and its foul smell; vaginal redness; and frequency had a significant relation with contamination rate of richomonas vaginalis.
Conclusion: The results showed that those who did not apply health principles were susceptible to contamination of the disorders. In spite of having medical facilities, the contamination rate of the subjects was relatively high. It can be concluded that the necessity of obligatory medical examination, management, and follow-up in this population has a critical importance.
