Trichomoniasis (or “trich”) is a very common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by infection with a protozoan parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. Although symptoms of the disease vary, most women and men who have the parasite cannot tell they are infected. Many people who have the infection have no symptoms, but when symptoms occur, they include vaginal or urethral (in men) discharge that may appear greenish and frothy, burning on urination, discomfort during sex, and itching in the genital area.
HOW IS TRICHOMONIASIS DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis of trichomoniasis can be confirmed by looking at a sample of vaginal fluid for women or urine for men under a microscope. Growing a culture used to be the way to diagnose trichomoniasis, but newer, faster tests, such as rapid antigen tests and nucleic acid amplification, are more common now.
HOW IS TRICHOMONIASIS TREATED?
Trichomoniasis can be cured with antibiotics and after treatment, Trichomoniasis is usually cured within a week.
DID YOU KNOW?
Long-term infection may cause changes in the tissue on the cervix. These changes may be seen on a routine Pap smear. Treatment should be started and the Pap smear repeated 3 to 6 months later. Treating trichomoniasis helps prevent it from spreading to sexual partners. Trichomoniasis is common among people with HIV. This condition has been linked to premature delivery in pregnant women. More research about trichomoniasis in pregnancy is still needed.
