About 7 in 10 persons have no symptoms when infected with Trichomoniasis. Older women tend to be more susceptible to this infection than younger women.

Signs & Symptoms Of Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis can be spread through any sexual intercourse including penetrative or receptive vaginal sex, penetrative or receptive oral sex and lastly penetrative or receptive anal sex. 

For the 3 in 10 persons who develop symptoms from Trichomoniasis, men, tend to feel pain when they pass urine, this is also known as dysuria. A burning sensation after they pass urine or even pain and burning during ejaculation and last but not least discharge arising from the penis. The consistency of this discharge varies between pus-like to sometimes watery fluid. If these symptoms arise, they tend to get noticed anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks after their sexual exposure.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to differentiate the type of STD just by symptoms alone, nor is it possible to diagnose an STD again just by symptoms alone. Accurate testing that involves the use of latest Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology allows for quick, fuss free testing at DTAP Express, allowing one to receive results of their tests in 72 hours for Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea and up to 3-5 working days for the other STDs including Trichomoniasis.

Trichomoniasis is like Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea, in that it is completely curable.

Trichomoniasis Testing & Treatment

Trichomoniasis is a fully curable STD and rapid tests yield conclusive results in less than 72 hours. At DTAP Express, Full Urine STD tests allow for infections such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea to be tested and other smaller STDs such as ureaplasma and mycoplasma picked up in the full urine STD tests. These are fully curable.

Symptoms of Trichomoniasis may mimic other STD infections such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. In Singapore’s context, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are the most common STDs in Singapore.

Early testing and treatment prevents the risk of picking up other STDs such as HIV, which is incurable. DTAP Express offers a quick, fuss-free and convenient way of getting tested for STDs including Trichomoniasis.
