In brief: Parasite

Trichamonas is a tiny parasite that is transmitted from infected people by sex.
It is treated with an antibiotic. You and any partners you have had all need to get treated, or you can keep passing it back and forth to each other. Using condoms can prevent getting it or any other diseases. You need to be checked as soon as possible and make sure you don't have anything else.
