Trichomoniasis – a disease of infectious origin, the causative agent of which – Trichomonas – enters the body through unprotected sexual intercourse. This is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections, which affects the vagina in women and the prostate to the urethra in men.
How is infection with Trichomonas
As a rule, the infection occurs during penetrative sexual intercourse in the vagina. Trichomonas does not harm the moist environment and can remain viable up to a few hours, so there is very little risk of consumer exposure, for example, when using common towels or washcloths. But most of the cases of “domestic” trichomoniasis are actually late diagnosed infection in the chronic form.
After transmission of the pathogen from one person to another, Trichomonas is attached to the walls of the vagina or urethra, and to proliferate. When the number of the pathogen becomes great, they attack human cells. The incubation period of trichomoniasis is from 4 to 28 days.
How does the disease?
Women are easier to detect infection and they can watch at such acts as:
– Changes in vaginal discharge accompanied by an unpleasant odor;
– Inflammation of the genital organs;
– Painful urination;
– Sexual intercourse accompanied by pain.
If Trichomonas affects male genitourinary system, the disease is nearly asymptomatic. In rare cases can cause discharge from the penis, the symptoms of prostatic hyperplasia and cramps during urination.

After absorption Flagyl drug in the gastrointestinal tract, the active agent is distributed throughout the body, making the ER Flagyl drug is widely used in various infectious lesions, including trichomoniasis.
