Living with trichomoniasis: Coping with a trichomoniasis diagnosis
Receiving a positive trichomonosis test result can be surprising and upsetting, especially given many people in the United States aren’t even familiar with trichomonosis, often called “trich” for short. Though the side effects of trichomoniasis may not initially point to an STD, trichomoniasis symptoms such as genital discharge and painful urination need to be addressed to avoid long-term trichomoniasis complications. Fortunately, trichomonosis treatment is available. Following a positive test for trichomonosis, medication can be administered that cures the disease completely. It’s important, therefore, not to ignore the results of a trichomonosis test and seek medical intervention as quickly as possible. More information about trichomonosis can be found via the following links:
A product of The Institute of Sexual Health, STDtesting.com is loaded with information about trichomonosis symptoms and side effects. Confidential Trichomoniasis testing is also available. A trichomonosis test can be taken at home or administered in a trusted laboratory. Once infection is confirmed, those who test positive for trichomonosis can receive complimentary counseling from in-house professionals and a prescription to cure the infection.
