Were you looking for information about Trichomoniasis? Trichomonas is a common misspelling of trichomoniasis.
Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection that occurs in about 7.4 million people each year. It is caused by a parasite and is primarily an infection of the urogenital tract. Most men do not have symptoms, and when women have symptoms, they usually appear within 5 to 28 days after exposure to the parasite. After your healthcare provider performs certain laboratory tests to confirm a trichomoniasis diagnosis, he or she will give you a single dose of metronidazole to treat the infection.
