Type: Critter. The organism is a protozoa (a single-celled animal). It is called Trichomonas vaginalis.

Symptoms: Symptoms in woman include a frothy yellow-green vaginal discharge with a strong odor, and severe itching in the vagina. Men with symptoms will have irritation inside the penis, mild discharge, or slight burning after urination or ejaculating. Some men have it with no symptoms at all.

Incubation Period: About 4 to 20 days. Average 7 days.

Treatment: Trichomoniasis can usually be cured with one dose of the prescribed drug metronidazole, also known by the brand name: Flagyl . You and your sexual partner(s) must both be treated at the same time so you do not get re-infected. You can not have any alcohol during treatment with this drug.

Left Untreadted: The burning and itching will continue to get worse.

Using condoms will prevent Trichomoniasis. Condoms must be made of latex to prevent STDs!
