- itching inside the penis

- discomfort during intercourse and burning after ejaculation
Trich is considered the most common curable STD. In the United States. An estimated 3.7 million people have trichomoniasis, but over 70% never develop any symptoms. Infection is more common in women than in men who can often get re-infected within 3 months after treatment. It’s important for both sexual partners to get screened and treated if they are infected to avoid re-infection.
The only way to confirm if you have this common STD is to take a trichomoniasis test. Your can get this test done through your general practitioner, or, you can use a home trichomoniasis test kit. When you take the home test, you’ll need to swab your genitals send the sample in the self-addressed stamped envelope to our specialty labs. The whole process is super easy, affordable, and discreet.
If you have trich, consult with your doctor to get the proper antibiotics. Doctors typically recommend metronidazole or tinidazole to treat this STD.
In addition to protecting yourself, you should also protect those around you. Let your sexual partner(s) know about your diagnosis. Suggest your partner take a trichomoniasis test. Many times a man can have the infection and not show symptoms, giving it back to his partner even after she’s been treated.
*You should do a trichomoniasis test every few months to learn more about your sexual health and have peace of mind about this STD.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I TEST POSITIVE?
If you test positive, instruction will be provided on how to obtain a free telemedicine consultation with a physician in your state. This physician may be able to prescribe treatment for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea or Trich. Depending on the infection, you may also need to retest after treatment to confirm the infection is gone.
It is crucial that you inform your sexual partners of your test results, whether they’re positive or negative. Sharing this information will help stop the spread of any infection and will allow your partners to seek testing and treatment immediately if necessary.
Keep testing. Just because you’ve tested once does not mean that you shouldn’t test again. In fact, it’s common to get infected with certain STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea, multiple times. myLAB Box recommends that you test every few months, especially if you’ve received a positive result in the past.

Please note: Trich testing is very accurate for women and slightly less accurate for men, with more false positive and false negative test results. Men can be asymptomatic carriers, and still infect their partners. For most comprehensive results, we recommend including trich in your regular testing options.
