Trichomoniasis is a very common sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by infection carried by the protozoan parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. The symptoms of the disease can vary, and most men and women who have the parasite do not know they are infected.
Trichomoniasis is considered the most common curable sexually transmitted disease. In the United States, an estimated 3.7 million people have the infection, but only about 30% have any symptoms. It is more common in women than in men, and older women are more likely than younger women to have the infection.
