Trichomonas is an infection of the vagina in women and the urethra in men, caused by a protozoan. It causes pain and inflammation and usually a green or yellow discharge. It is usually transmitted sexually, and can be treated by using an antibiotic called Metronidazole.
If you are unsure whether you have contracted this disease but have similar symptoms, then it is important that you see your G.P or go along to one of the many special Genitourinary diseases clinics their telephone number can be found in your local directory.
It is important also to trace other sexual partners if you have had more than one in order that they can get treatment. One of the best ways of avoiding contracting these types of diseases is to keep to just one partner or always use condoms.
