Preparing for your appointment

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Your family doctor, gynecologist or a medical practitioner at an urgent care center can diagnose and prescribe treatment for trichomoniasis.

What you can do

Before the appointment, you might want to prepare a list that includes:

  • A detailed description of your symptoms, including when they started
  • Any sexually transmitted infections you've had
  • The number of sexual partners you've had during the past few years

What to expect from your doctor

Your doctor will perform a pelvic exam and may take a sample of your vaginal fluids for testing.
