Trichomonas Vaginalis

Trichomonas vaginalis is the name given to the sexually transmitted disease caused by a tiny parasite that resides in the vagina and urethra. The majority of people do not exhibit symptoms but those that do will typically begin to show symptoms between three and 21 days post infection. Symptoms in women include increased discharge with a musty or fishy smell, itching, soreness and inflammation, pain when urinating or during sexual intercourse and tenderness in the lower abdomen. Symptoms in men include a thin, whitish discharge and pain or burning when urinating. Antibiotics is the standard treatment but naturopathy may also help.
