Trichomoniasis Symptoms

Trichomoniasis is a common STD caused by a parasite and can be spread through several different kinds of sexual activity. Trichomoniasis can be asymptomatic, particularly in men, so it is very easy to spread unknowingly. Early detection is important when dealing with trichomoniasis to prevent the spread of infection. A trichomoniasis infection can also increase the risk of contracting other STDs.

Schedule a Test

The Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, states that trichomoniasis is the most common curable sexually transmitted infection. A simple urine sample is all that is needed for the detection of trichomoniasis. Regular testing is extremely important to prevent the spread of trichomoniasis as it often goes undiagnosed due to the asymptomatic nature of the infection. Trichomoniasis is completely curable and you can test as soon as 72 hours after exposure.

The treatment for trichomoniasis is a single dose of prescription antibiotic, most likely metronidazole or tinidazole. It is possible for re-infection to occur, with most cases of re-infection appearing within 3 months of treatment. To avoid re-infection, it is important for all of your sexual partners to be treated as well and to abstain from sexual activity until your symptoms completely resolve.
