What is Trichomoniasis?

Trichomoniasis is a common infectious disease caused by vaginal trichomonas.

The body of this unicellular microorganism has a wave-like membrane, as well as several flagella, or hairs, which provide active movement of trichomonas and their intracellular penetration.

Trichomonas are anaerobic parasites, and that fact greatly increases their area of distribution.

According to statistics, trichomoniasis usually develops in combination with other infectious diseases, among which chlamydia and gonorrhea are predominant.

Only in one case of ten cases of trichomoniasis appears to be a monoinfection.
