Do you have genital symptoms? – Trichomoniasis Symptoms Checker

 

Trichomoniasis is an infection because of a parasite, Trichomonas vaginalis. Its transmission mostly occurs through sexual contact; so, it receives the name of a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

This infection is widespread in both the United States and the world. Besides, it tends to appear in patients with other STIs to the point it has been denoted out as a disease of public health concern.

Several complications exist because of this infection. Firstly, it raises the chances for people to develop other STIs like HIV infection. It could also prompt unwelcome problems in female patients, such as issues during pregnancy, difficulties getting pregnant, infections after surgeries, and even cancer.

It is essential to know that people could carry out this infection without knowing. That is to say that when symptoms appear, they are very bothering in both males and females. However, a large proportion of them have the parasite in their genitals, but it is not producing any symptom on them.

The latter fact (lack of symptoms) contributes to the underrecognition that this infection has nowadays. So, the medical community recommends enforcing routine testing with better tests than those currently. All women with a new secretion or discharge coming out from their vagina should be screened for this infection or females with an overall high risk for STIs.

Females with trichomoniasis can transmit it to their child being born. This infection can cause in the newly born baby life-threatening infections in the respiratory, urinary, or genital tract. Hence, pregnant female patients should always seek medical care to rule out this infection.

Luckily, the treatment and eradication of this infection are straightforward with the right medication. Besides, it is important to note that the sexual partner’s treatment is also necessary, and abstaining from any sexual intercourse while taking the treatment.

This is a Trichomoniasis Symptoms Checker. It gathers the most important signs, symptoms, and risk factors for this infection.

As we said before. It is important to have in mind that many patients will carry out this infection without showing any symptoms. Therefore, the only way for them to know if they have the infection is by going to the doctor and get tested.

However, the symptoms this infection produces in both males and females are in genital and urinary tracts. So, depending on the characteristics, they could be very suggestive of this infection when the symptoms appear.

That is what this tool is all about. It aims to identify risk factors and the most important symptoms concerning trichomoniasis. Hence, it could result in positive either if somebody has any symptoms or risk factors for this infection.

Please remember that this tool does not replace all tests a doctor would perform. Yet, it represents a likelihood of somebody’s symptoms being because of this infection or persons with a high risk of having it. Using this tool is free and would take a few minutes.
