What is Trichomoniasis or Trichomonas?
Trichomonas is an infectious parasite that causes trichomoniasis (or “trich” as it is commonly called).
Trichomoniasis is one of the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in both men and women. It is more common today than chlamydia and gonorrhea in many populations in the US.
Symptoms of Trichomonas in Men
Most men who are infected with trichomonas have no symptoms; some men develop symptoms of urethritis such as frequent urination, pain or burning when they urinate, urethral discharge from the penis and difficulty emptying bladder.
Treatment of Trichomonas or Trich in Men
Effective treatment with antibiotics can cure trichomoniasis in men. Men who test positive for trichomonas should be tested for other sexually transmitted diseases. Trichomoniasis increases the risk of being co-infected with chlamydia and other STI.
Testing for Trichomonas in Men
Effective tests in men include urethral swab and urine tests for Trichomonas. At New York Urology Specialists we use modern DNA-based testing that detects more than 95% of infections with great accuracy. With a negative test, you can be assured that there is no trich infection.
