What is trichomoniasis?

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a unicellular protozoan parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. It is a pear-shaped protozoan with a long flagellum.

Trichomoniasis is easily spread during sexual intercourse and is also associated with other STDs such as gonorrhea, syphilis and even HIV.

People affected by trichomoniasis do not usually develop symptoms, although clinical manifestations such as vaginitis, abundant greenish-white exudate, vaginal irritation, etc. may appear.

The treatment of trichomoniasis is very simple and consists of taking antibiotics such as Metronidazole or Thioconazole.
