What Is Trichomoniasis?
There are many kinds of sexually transmitted diseases that do not get the same amount of attention as some of the already well-known ones such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and herpes. Many of these lesser-known STDs are still quite common, and being aware of the symptoms they cause is incredibly important.
Trichomoniasis is one of the more common STDs that can spread as a result of oral, vaginal, or anal intercourse. This STD will often not produce any noticeable symptoms in males but can cause a number of issues for females. Many women will experience intense itching, pain during urination, and the discharge of a foul-smelling substance from the vagina.
Trichomoniasis can be cured with antibiotics, but you will not be able to receive the treatment you need if you do not take the time to get examined. Gynecologist Dr. Mary Geldernick can provide you with the examination and treatment you need to properly take care of your trichomoniasis. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
