Test for trichomoniasis and other STDs in the privacy of your own home. Complete your trichomoniasis test when it's convenient to you, and then receive your results about 3 business days after the package arrives at the lab. If results are positive, in-house doctors can prescribe medication that cures the infection in 7 to 10 days.
Trichomoniasis is one of the most common STD tests we conduct. Its a simple urine test, and uses a process called nucleic acid amplification to look for the genetic material or DNA of trichomoniasis bacteria. It is the most accurate type of trichomoniasis test available.
The process is simple and fast. Once you order your trichomoniasis, your STD test kit will arrive in 2 to 4 mailing days via USPS. The test requires a urine sample for men and a vaginal fluid swab for women. This kit includes a convenient, postage-paid testing kit for easy return shipping.
Just remember to avoid urinating 1 to 2 hours before taking your test. Its also important to remember that other sexually transmitted diseases may be present at the same time as trichomoniasis, so people often will get tested for all STDs at the same time. Taking them at once will save considerable money and give you added peace of mind.
Trichomoniasis is a very common STD, yet many people have not heard of this infection. According to the CDC, about 3.7 million people are infected with trichomoniasis. This STD, commonly referred to as "trich," is caused by a parasite that is transmitted during sex. Fortunately, it is easily cured with antibiotics.
In most cases, trichomoniasis doesn't cause any symptoms. When present, symptoms are similar to gonorrhea or chlamydia, two other common STDs. This infection can cause irritation or inflammation, ranging from mild to severe, as well as abnormal discharge. In women, it can cause an unpleasant fishy odor.
