Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection. It is caused by a single-cell organism called trichomonas vaginalis, which is passed on between partners during sex. In 50% of cases, patients do not develop any symptoms. If you believe you have caught Trichomonas, you should get tested as soon as possible to prevent complications.
