Main Causes of Trichomoniasis

Sex is not only a source of joy and pleasure. In some cases, irresponsible attitude towards your own health can have dangerous consequences and trichomoniasis is one of them.

It is the mane of a sexually transmitted infectious disease of the human genitourinary system. Trichomoniasis occupies one of the leading places in the list of venereal diseases that affect the sexual organs of men and women.

Trichomoniasis is caused by vaginal trichomonas (Trichomonas vaginalis). They get into the body during an unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person. Pathogens of the disease are the simplest single-celled microorganisms adapted to life in the human genitourinary system. In men, they live in the urethra and prostate. In women, they live in the vagina, urethra, and bladder. The incubation period of the disease is from one to four weeks.

Diagnostics of trichomoniasis is carried out using a microscopic examination of the smear of vaginal discharge in women and the urethra in men. To confirm its results, a culture (culture method) or PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is used.

Most often, this infection comes from an infected partner who does not know about the illness. In most of the disease carriers, the disease can be asymptomatic, especially in the sterner sex.
