Trichomonas… totally curable!

Trichomonas, sometimes call “trich”, is a parasite that can be spread during sexy time. Most often it’s the person with a vagina that has the signs and symptoms (but anyone can have it, and spread it). Vaginitis can happen, which is when the vagina is inflamed, sore, and super itchy.

Possible Signs & Symptoms

Super important detail: Trich is curable! It doesn’t have to be tricky, visit a clinic or the nursing station for a test and some pills. You have to make sure to give the treatment time to work before doing sex stuff again, and when the time is right use a condom to help prevent trich. PS- your sexual partners need testing & treatment too.
