The infection makes itself apparent through itching, burning when urinating or pain during sex. An infected person often has the feeling that they have to go to the toilet. A bad smelling, yellowish-green discharge is also typical. It is also common, however, for infected people to show no symptoms.
In women,if the infection spreads, there is a danger that it may spread to and damage the fallopian tubes. In the worst case scenario, this may cause infertility. Pregnant women with trichomoniasis suffer more frequently from complications, such as premature birth.
If men are infected with trichomoniasis, they usually have no symptoms. Sometimes they may experience slight inflammation with discharge and burning. Even if they have no symptoms, they can still pass on the infection to their partners.
