Pregnant women who have trichomoniasis may:

  • Deliver prematurely
  • Have a baby with a low birth weight
  • Transmit the infection to the baby as it passes through the birth canal

Having trichomoniasis also appears to make it easier for women to become infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
