- Trichomoniasis is a common sexually transmitted infection caused by a parasite. In women, trichomoniasis can cause smelly discharge, itchy genitals, and painful urination.
- Men with trichomoniasis usually have no symptoms. Pregnant women with trichomoniasis may have a higher risk of giving birth prematurely.
- To avoid re-infection with the organism causing trichomoniasis, both partners should be treated. The most common treatment for trichomoniasis is taking a megadose of metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax). You can reduce your risk of infection by properly using condoms every time you have sex. Trichomoniasis Treatment in Nizamabad

- Often malodorous vaginal discharge – which can be white, gray, yellow, or green
Genital redness, burning and itching
Pain when urinating or having sex
Trichomoniasis rarely causes symptoms in men. However, when men are showing signs and symptoms, they can include:
- Irritation in the penis
- Burning sensation when urinating or after ejaculation
- Discharge from the penis
Trichomoniasis is caused by a unicellular protozoon, a type of tiny parasite that moves between people during sex. The incubation time between exposure and infection is unknown but is believed to vary between four and 28 days. Trichomoniasis Treatment in Nizamabad
