In brief: No

No, but it would not detect in a female either. Trichomonas vaginalis is a parasite.
Chlamydia trachomatis and neisseria gonorrhea are bacteria. The proper test for trichomoniasis is a wet prep.

In brief: No

That would only detect chlamydia and gonorrhea, respectively.
A urethral swab can be done for microscopic exam but still may not catch it even if present.

In brief: No

These probes are designed to detect chlamydia and gonococci, not trichomonas.
