Sometimes referred to as “trich,” trichomoniasis is the most common curable sexually transmitted disease (STD).

An estimated 2.6 million people in the United States are infected with trichomoniasis annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), although just 30 percent typically develop symptoms. The infection is more common in women than in men, and men often have no symptoms, per the CDC.

Caused by a parasite, trichomoniasis can cause a foul-smelling vaginal discharge, genital itching, and painful urination.

Trichomonas Vaginalis

Trichomoniasis is caused by the protozoan parasite Trichomonas vaginalis, which is transmitted during sexual contact.
