Women are much more likely to have symptoms, though some do not. Female symptoms include:

  • Itching and irritation of the genital area
  • Painful urination
  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Sexual discomfort
  • Vaginal discharge that is thick and either gray or yellowish-green

Upon recognizing one is suffering from any of the above symptoms, seek medical advice as soon as possible from a specialist STD clinic or from a family doctor. This is necessary to rule out any other forms of STDs and due to the fact that Trichomoniasis has been indicated as facilitating the spread of HIV. A diagnosis is made by the doctor or nurse taking a swab, which is then sent off to a laboratory for testing. As symptoms often go unnoticed or are not present, there is a very high risk of passing the infection on, making it even more crucial to always have protected sex, in order to reduce the risk of picking up an STD.
