Exams and Tests
Trichomoniasis (trich) is diagnosed by:
People can get other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea or syphilis at the same time they get a trich infection. If one STD is diagnosed, you will likely be tested for other STDs so that all infections can be treated at the same time.
In women, the trich parasite may also be identified by a routine Pap test done as part of a regular gynecologic exam. Expert opinions vary on the accuracy of a Pap test for diagnosing trich. But if a Pap test shows trich, your doctor will probably talk to you about treatment or maybe other tests.
