About the Test

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. It primarily affects the genital tract, although it can also infect the urethra in men.

In many cases, trichomoniasis has no symptoms, so people can be infected and spread the disease without knowing it. When symptoms do occur, they can include:

  • Irritation and itching in the genital area
  • Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Pain or discomfort during sex (in women)

Trichomonas

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. It primarily affects the genital tract, although it can also infect the urethra in men.

In many cases, trichomoniasis has no symptoms, so people can be infected and spread the disease without knowing it. When symptoms do occur, they can include:

  • Irritation and itching in the genital area
  • Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Pain or discomfort during sex (in women)

Trichomoniasis can be diagnosed with a simple test, such as a vaginal swab or urine test. It is easily treated with antibiotics, but if left untreated, it can lead to serious health problems, such as increased risk of contracting other STIs, including HIV.

To prevent the spread of trichomoniasis and other STIs, it is important to practice safe sex by using condoms or other forms of barrier protection and to get tested regularly if you are sexually active. If you think you may have trichomoniasis, it is important to see a healthcare provider for evaluation and treatment.
