Trichomoniasis, an infection with the parasitic protozoans known as trichomonas, is often quite mild in men. You may only notice a slight burning sensation when you pee. This infection often occurs together with other STIs.

Symptoms of trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis often causes no clear symptoms in men. If there are symptoms, they can include:

  • irritation or a burning sensation when peeing
  • redness and inflammation of the glans
  • discharge from your penis (sometimes)

Treatment of trichomoniasis

In men, the infection usually goes away by itself. Treatment involves a single dose of antibiotics and is only necessary if you have symptoms. Once you have been healed, you will not be immune to trichomonas. In other words: you could always get them again.

Transmission of trichomonas

Trichomonads are transmitted by fucking without a condom.

Testing for trichomoniasis

A urine test will show whether or not you have trichomoniasis.
