Trichomoniasis is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. The infection occurs in both women and men, but it is curable. Men generally do not have symptoms of this condition, though in rare cases they may experience discharge or burning during urination. Women, on the other hand, experience symptoms such as strong vaginal odor and discharge. Trichomoniasis can also cause itching and pain during intercourse and urination. Often, women will mistake this STD for a bacterial or yeast infection. If one partner has this STD, the other should be screened and treated to prevent re-infection.
