Trichomoniasis does not transmit through non-sexual contacts like kissing, hand-shaking or sharing foods and drinks.

What are the symptoms?

Women will experience:

  • Discomfort during sex and urinating
  • Clear whitish, greenish or yellowish vaginal discharge with fishy smell
  • Redness, soreness, itching and burning around the genitals

Men will experience:

  • Burning during urinating or ejaculating
  • Itching or irritation in the penis
  • Abnormal discharge from the penis

When to get tested

When you have had unprotected sex and show potential signs of an STD, it is necessary to undergo a Trichomoniasis test. Usually it is a dormant infection and the symptoms start to appear within 5-28 days of getting the infection. Many get symptoms at later stage of life.

Women are more prone to the infection and you may need to perform the test at any private sexual health clinic near you when:

  • Having sex with multiple partners
  • Having unprotected sex
  • Had previous bouts of other STDs or Trichomoniasis

What to expect from the Trichomoniasis testing in London

The test involves a physical exam with urine or swab sample collection. So, don’t urinate for at least 2 hours before the test to ensure a concentrated sample is provided to seek accurate result. The doctor will consult with you regarding sexual history along with any present concerns and symptoms that you may have. To collect a cervical swab, the doctor will insert the speculum into the vagina. You may feel slight discomfort during the test but it is not painful. You will get the result as soon as it is ready.
