How will I know if I have trichomonas?
You need a test to find out if you have trichomonas. A test for trichomonas is usually offered if:
and rounded. It sometimes has a small plastic loop on the end rather than a cotton tip. It’s wiped over the parts of the body that could be infected and easily picks up samples of discharge and cells. This only takes a few seconds and isn’t painful, though it may be uncomfortable for a moment. Sometimes your sample can be looked at under a microscope and you can get the result straight away. Otherwise, you may have to wait up to 10 days. Routine blood tests don’t detect trichomonas. If you don’t know if you’ve been tested for trichomonas, just ask.
How soon can I have sex again?
