Symptoms generally start up after 5 to 28 days of infection. Once treatment is started, symptoms will start to go away in about a week. Without treatment, the STD will remain in the body and increase the risk of getting and/or spreading other STDS, like HIV.
Trichomoniasis can only be contracted from an infected person to an uninfected person during sexual intercourse. Contact between genitals passes the parasite from one person to another. Women can contract the STD from another woman’s genitalia or a man’s genitalia. Men can only contract the STD from women. Additionally, Trichomoniasis can survive on objects, so sharing sheets, towels, or underwear can spread this STD as well.
The only way to avoid STDs is to completely avoid sexual intercourse of any type. However, If you are sexually active, there are safety precautions you should take.
