Trichomoniasis is a common, but treatable sexually transmitted infection caused by a microscopic parasite trichomonas vaginalis. It travels though sexual fluids, through vulva-to-vulva contact, sharing sex toys, and from touching your genitals with infected hands. It doesn’t show symptoms early like yeasts but when it does its symptoms can often be mistaken for that yeast infection. It can also be treated with antibiotics just like yeast infection. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Jed Place New You 2021-11-25T23:09:40+01:00Added an answer on November 25, 2021 at 11:09 pm At first blush, vaginal trichomoniasis and yeast infections caused by candida overgrowth appear similar, and they do share similarities, particularly in the symptoms that they present. However, they also have distinct differences that determine how they should be handled and treated. Trichomoniasis does not often present noticeable vaginal symptoms, which is partly why this sexually transmitted infection is so easily spread. By comparison, yeast infections present very obvious vaginal symptoms in nearly every case. Trichomoniasis is also a strictly sexually transmitted infection. This means that it can only be transmitted through sexual intercourse and related activities. Yeast infections, on the other hand, can be caused even without having sex. Yeast infections occur when your vaginal pH goes out of balance, allowing for candida overgrowth. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
