- What is trichomonas vaginalis?
Trichomonas is caused by a parasite and is easy to treat.
- How is it transmitted?
Trichomonas is transmitted by unsafe sexual contact.
One to four weeks after infection, the first symptoms may develop, but in some cases, it can take years before the first symptoms appear. Therefore, it is very difficult to assess when someone was infected.
Furthermore, women often have more complaints than men.
Trichomonas may cause an infection in the vagina, urethra or bladder.
If the vagina is infected, it can cause itching and (sometimes yellow-green) discharge which smells unpleasant. The labia and inside of the vagina may be red, painful and swollen.
