How do I know if I have trichomoniasis?

ANSWER

Your doctor may want to examine your vaginal or urethral discharge under a microscope or test your urine. Trichomoniasis occasionally shows up on Pap tests in women with no symptoms. Your safest course is to get tested if you think you may have been exposed to the parasite.
