Were you looking for information about Trichomoniasis? Trichomonis is a common misspelling of trichomoniasis.
Trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted infection, is caused by a parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. The infection most often occurs in the vagina in women and the urethra in men, and most people do not develop any symptoms. A healthcare provider can diagnose trichomoniasis by performing laboratory tests on fluid samples from the vagina or penis. Healthcare providers usually use metronidazole in a single dose to treat people infected with the parasite.
