If the doctor or nurse thinks that you have Trichomoniasis, a swab test from the vagina (in women) or a urine sample (in men) will be taken.
Trichomoniasis is treated with antibiotics.
If you have Trichomoniasis, your partner will also be offered testing and treatment.
You will have to wait until 1 week after you (and your partner) have finished your treatment before having sex again (even oral sex or sex with a condom). You can find an STI clinic near you here.
Without treatment, the infection can last for months. It is very unusual for Trichomoniasis to cause serious complications.
