Infection with the protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis is the most common treatable STI in the world. People get trich from having unprotected sexual contact with someone who has the infection. Trich is often passed during vaginal sex. It’s also spread by vulva-to-vulva contact, sharing sex toys, and touching your own or your partner’s genitals if you have infected fluids on your hand. T. vaginalis may be diagnosed by Pap smear, culture or microscopy of a wet preparation. Trichomonal infection is treated with a single dose of metronidazole or tinidazole. You can reduce your risk of infection by using condoms correctly every time you have sex. Most studies of treatment efficacy have been conducted in women, and there is a surprising lack of evidence regarding their efficacy in men.
