Many women and most men with trichomoniasis have no symptoms, at least not at first. Trichomoniasis signs and symptoms for women include:

  • A profuse and often foul-smelling vaginal discharge — which may be white, gray, yellow or green
  • Genital redness, burning and itching
  • Pain with urination or sexual intercourse

Signs and symptoms may worsen during menstruation. But some women who have trichomoniasis don't have any symptoms. Men who have trichomoniasis rarely exhibit symptoms, but when they do, it's usually painful urination.

When to see a doctor

See your doctor if you have a foul-smelling vaginal discharge or if you experience pain with urination or sexual intercourse.
