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

Trichomoniasis rarely causes symptoms in men. When men do have signs and symptoms, however, they may include:

  • Irritation inside the penis
  • Burning with urination or after ejaculation
  • Discharge from the penis

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.
