Trichomoniasis

This STD, also known as trichomonas vaginitis, is caused by a microscopic parasite. Trichomoniasis can be treated with medicine prescribed by your OBGYN doctor. Symptoms include:

• Abnormal vaginal discharge
• Fishy odor
• Burning or irritation
• Redness
• Swelling of the vulva

To diagnose this condition, the OBGYN doctor takes a small sample of a swab and sends it out to the lab. Some offices even have an in-office test they can do and you can get the results that day. It is very important that your sexual partner also gets treated so that you do not get the STD back.
