Trichomonas vaginalis is a single-cell microscopic protozoan parasite – the only STD resulting from a parasitic infection. It can also cause infections of the urethra and or inflammation of the prostate glands.
STD Express Clinic offers trichomonas testing in our advanced facility that has state-of-the-art equipment and a fully-trained team of professionals.
The most common symptoms include the following:
- Irritation, itching, and a burning sensation in the vagina
- Grey or yellow-green discharge that has a foul smell
- An increased urge to urinate
- Blood spotting from the vagina in some cases
Trichomonas is an easily curable sexually transmitted disease.
Trichomonas Testing & Treatment
No Appointment Needed. Just Walk In During Extended Clinic Hours
Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) are the most sensitive tests for trichomonas.
The culture test is a sensitive one and provides specific results. However, this test can be done at a later stage as the parasites must be allowed to grow for detection. Other methods include the direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) test that detects the presence of antigens.
A positive test will necessitate treatment with a course of prescription medication.
STD Express Clinic will test you for trichomonas privately and discreetly. We offer same-day testing and treatment option. Simply walk in during any day of the week and get tested.
