How is it spread?

By unprotected sex with a person who has the infection

 

What are the symptoms? 

This infection seems to affect more women than men but women can pass it on through sexual contact or through sharing sex toys and not washing them between uses or not covering them with a condom.

Up to half of men and women will not have any signs or symptoms. Signs and symptoms usually show up within about a month of coming into contact with the disease.

The main symptoms are:

· Vaginal discharge which is thin, yellow or green, frothy and/or with a fishy smell

· Itchy or sore vagina

. Pain when passing urine

· Men may experience unusual discharge or a sore penis

 

How can I get rid of it?

A course of antibiotics will be given to get rid of the parasite and the infection. Sexual contact should be avoided until you have finished the treatment

 

To help avoid getting one at all – use a condom!
