Trichomoniasis is unlikely to go away without treatment. The infection may cure itself in rare cases, but you risk passing the infection on to someone else if you're not treated.


Trichomoniasis is a type of sexually transmitted infection caused by a tiny parasite.


Symptoms of trichomoniasis include pain when peeing, sore or itchy genitals, and abnormal discharge from your vagina or penis.


Trichomoniasis is usually spread by having sex without a condom or sharing sex toys.


Trichomoniasis can usually be treated with antibiotics. You can get treatment from a sexual health clinic or GP.
