Some women have no symptoms. Symptoms usually appear 5 to 28 days after exposure and can include:

  • Yellow-green (sometimes frothy) vaginal discharge with a foul odor
  • Discomfort during sex and when passing urine
  • Irritation and itching in the genital area
  • Lower abdominal pain in rare cases

If you have any symptoms, stop having sex and contact your doctor right away.

I think I may have this trichomoniasis thing, I have not been to a doctor yet it seems to be the signs of it. About some week now I notice whenever I have sex with my partner it has an abnormal smell and there is this watery greenish yellowish thing in my underwear. I have tummy pain with this high smell.

My partner noticed a fishy smell during sex. Only issues of trichomoniasis I had was excessive thirst and frequent need to urinate. Be careful ladies, men normally have no signs of this.
