Trichomoniasis – One of the most common STIs

Trichomoniasis is caused by Trichomonas Vaginalis, a small bacterial parasite present in the human genito-urinary tract. According to WHO (World Health Organisation) estimates, around 180 million people worldwide contract this sexually transmitted infection every year.

What are the symptoms of Trichomoniasis?

First of all, the main source of infection is normally the vagina in women and the urethra in men. Trichomonas vaginalis gets passed on between humans via sexual intercourse. Women can catch the infection from both infected men and women, whereas men usually only contract it from infected women.

In men, the infection is often asymptomatic and goes by unnoticed. Some male patients experience urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), mild penile discharge or a burning sensation after passing urine or ejaculation.

Some women display signs of infection such as frothy, smelly, yellow-green vaginal discharge. The disease can also lead to discomfort during intercourse and urination, as well as irritation and itching of the vulva and female genitals in general. Very rarely, patients experience pain in the lower abdomen and symptoms usually appear within 5 to 28 days of exposure.

There may not be any outward symptoms, in fact around 50% of infected women don't experience any. Trichomoniasis can lead to urethritis and cystitis if left untreated. The infection can be passed from the mother to an unborn daughter during pregnancy. In men, the infection can progress to prostatitis.

How can Trichomoniasis be treated?

The infection can be cleared up speedily and effectively with Metronidazole, a broad spectrum antibiotic. Metronidazole has to be prescribed by a qualified doctor following a positive diagnosis.
