Trichomonas is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the parasite, Trichomonas vaginalis (TV). Symptoms often develop within a month of infection, but many people don’t experience any symptoms at all.
Symptoms may include –
- Vaginal discharge which is thick, frothy and yellow/ green in colour
- Producing more discharge than normal, perhaps with a strong fishy smell
- Soreness and inflammation around the vagina; possible resulting in itching
- Pain or discomfort passing urine or during sex
- Pain during urination or ejaculation
- Needing to wee more frequently than usual
- Soreness and swelling around the head of the penis
- Discharge from the penis
Testing for trichomonas involves an examination and swab taken from the genital area or a urine sample. If you have any further questions about trichomonas, please do not hesitate to contact your Midland Health GP for a sexual health consultation.
