Learn More about Trichomoniasis (Trich)



What is trichomoniasis?

Trichomoniasis, also commonly referred to as trich, is a sexually transmitted disease that is both common and easy to cure. The disease is caused by a parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis.

According to the CDC, there are an estimated 3.7 million people in the United States with trichomoniasis. However, most of these people are asymptomatic and many may be unaware that they have been infected.



Who is at risk for trichomoniasis?

Anyone that is sexually active is at risk for trichomoniasis. The disease can be spread from vagina to penis, from penis to vagina, or from vagina to vagina. Though anyone can contract the disease, it is much more common in women, especially those that are older.

As a result of the greater propensity for women to contract trichomoniasis, pregnant women should carefully assess their risk for the disease given the consequences that trichomoniasis can have on a child in the womb. Mothers with trichomoniasis are more likely to have preterm deliveries and their children are also more likely to have low birth weights.



What are the symptoms of trichomoniasis?

In most cases, people infected with trichomoniasis will not show any signs on symptoms. In fact, according to the CDC, 70% of infected people will not develop signs or symptoms of the disease.

When symptoms are present, the CDC reports that the following symptoms may be experienced by men and women:

Men:

  • Itching or irritation inside the penis;

  • Burning after urination or ejaculation;

  • Discharge from the penis.

Women:

  • Itching, burning, redness or soreness of the genitals;

  • Discomfort with urination;

  • A change in their vaginal discharge (i.e., thin discharge or increased volume) that can be clear, white, yellowish, or greenish with an unusual fishy smell.

It is important to note that symptoms may vary in severity and that symptoms may come and go over time.



How can you prevent trichomoniasis?

As with other STDs, the best way to prevent trichomoniasis is by knowing how to protect yourself. The CDC recommends the following measures for preventing trichomoniasis or any other sexually transmitted disease:

  • Use latex condoms consistently and correctly

  • Abstain from vaginal, anal, and oral sex

  • Be in a monogamous relationship with a partner that you know is uninfected.

Regular testing for trichomoniasis if you are in an at-risk group is also recommended to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.



Who should be tested for trichomoniasis?

The CDC recommends that all women that have been infected with HIV be tested for trichomonasis upon an initial HIV diagnosis and that testing for trichomonasis be continued on annual basis thereafter. Other women that are in high-risk settings or that engage in sexual activity with multiple partners should also consider testing.



How do you test for trichomoniasis?

Trichamoniasis is diagnosed through laboratory testing.



How is trichomoniasis treated?

Trichomoniasis is treated with oral medication. It is important to note that individuals can be re-infected with Trichomoniasis. Therefore, once treatment has been completed, sexual activity should abstained from in order to ensure avoid possible reinfection. Additionally, to further prevent possible reinfection, your sexual partner(s) should also be treated.



Testing for Other STDs

Sonora Quest Laboratories offers testing for a complete range of common sexually transmitted diseases. Choose from screenings for specific STDs or order a comprehensive STD Screen, which tests for all common STDs in one test.



*Certain patient test results are required by Arizona Administrative Code (R9-4-302 and 404.H. and R9-6-204) to be reported to the Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS) for public health reasons.

*It is solely your responsibility to promptly discuss all laboratory test results with a physician. Neither Sonora Quest Laboratories nor its Medical Director will provide interpretation, counseling, consulting, or care recommendations on the basis of any laboratory results provided to you.
