Urine samples were collected from 200 pregnant women with their consent after receiving of ethical consideration then examined using wet mount method. The result showed that 34(17.00%) were positive with T. vaginalis. It was found that, < 20 years age group had highest prevalence rate of 26.19% (42) followed by 21-25 years age group with 25.00% (13), then 26-30 years age group had 12.50% (40) while 31-35 years old had infection rate of 11.76% (4) and > 36 years old had lowest prevalence rate of 1 (4.55%). Statistically, there was no significant association (p>0.05). Similarly based on the gestation period those pregnant women in first trimester were found mostly infected with prevalence rate of 30.99% (22) followed by those in second trimester 20.00% (11) while those in third trimester had lowest prevalence rate of 1.35% (1). Statistically significant association was not observed (p>0.05). According to locality of the pregnant women, it was reported that, those women from rural area had highest infection rate of 28.00% (25) followed by those from urban area had infection rate of 7.4% (9), however, no significant association observed based on the locality of the women (p>0.05).
