Description, Causes and Risk Factors:
Disease caused by infection with a species of protozoon of the genus trichomonas or related genera.
Trichomoniasis is one of the most common curable sexually transmissible disease (STD) in young. An estimated 5 million new cases occur each year in women and men.
Trichomoniasis is a genital infection caused by the organism Trichomonas and related genera. Trichomoniasis is usually detected in women, and very rarely detected in men. It is quite common in major cities and most often found in women.
The disease does not spread via:
Sharing food or using the same dish.
Kissing or hugging.
Practicing safe sex by always using Condom is the best way of preventing infection with trichomoniasis, as well as most other STDs.
Most men with trichomoniasisdo not have signs or symptoms. Men with symptoms may have an irritation inside the penis, mild discharge, or slight burning after urination or ejaculation.Many women do have signs or symptoms of infection. In these women, trichomoniasis causes a frothy, yellow-green vaginal discharge with a strong odor. The infection may also cause discomfort during intercourse and urination. Irritation and itching of the female genital area and, in rare cases, lower abdominal pain can also occur.
To diagnose trichomoniasis, a Healthcare provider must perform a physical examination and laboratory test. In women, a pelvic examination can reveal small red ulcerations on the vaginal wall or cervix. Laboratory tests are performed on a sample of vaginal fluid or urethral fluid to look for the disease-causing parasite.
Trichomoniasis can usually be cured with the prescription drug, metronidazole (Rozex™), given by mouth in a single dose. Having trichomoniasis once does not protect a person from getting it again. Following successful treatment, people can still be susceptible to re-infection.
