TYI-S-33 medium was obtained for cultivation of Trichomonas vaginalis. After achieving the number of T. vaginalis (1 x 106) various concentrations of extracts were treated with parasites.  The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) on positive (metronidazole) and negative controle was calculated. Data were then analyzed using SPSS software by repeated measures.

Results: The percent of growth inhibition of Rheum ribes was 97.8 and 100% after 24 and 48 hours of incubation with T. vaginalis at 300 µg/ml concentration, The percent of growth inhibition of  Foeniculum vulgare were also evaluated. The results showed that the percent of growth inhibition at 800 µg /ml, after 24 h was 76% and after 48h it was evaluated as 79.4%.
