Although very common and easily transmissible, trichomoniasis is easily curable with antibiotics if caught early enough with a Trichomoniasis Test. Trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite which transmits from one person to another by way of sexual fluids. Condoms and other preventative measures can certainly help prevent the spread of trichomoniasis, but no measures are 100% safe. And while some who contract the parasite will experience irritation or inflammation, more than 70 percent of those infected experience no symptoms whatsoever. For this reason, the only way to know for sure if you have trichomoniasis is to take a reliable Trichomoniasis Test. If you do test positive for trichomoniasis, we do offer treatment options as well.

How Does Our Trichomoniasis Test Work?

The process of purchasing a Trichomoniasis Test at Priority Lab Testing is secure, private and simple. Purchase your test online along with any additional tests you would like. After completing the payment step, you can plan your visit to any of our 4,000 facilities. You do not need an appointment to come in for your test, simply check the business hours of the location you are interested in and stop by when you are ready.

The Trichomoniasis test requires no special preparation, such as fasting. It is a painless urine test. The only requirement is that you do not urinate for at least one hour before collecting the urine sample. Additionally, unlike other urine sample collections requiring you to cleanse the area before providing a sample, no cleansing should occur before the Trichomoniasis Test to ensure the most accurate results.

Once you arrive at the lab and check in with our staff, you will receive a container to collect your urine sample, and they will direct you to the nearest restroom, where you can collect the sample. You will then provide your sample to the lab specialist, who will send it for analysis. Then, between 24-72 hours following the test, you will receive a notification that your results are ready for viewing.

Who is at Risk of Contracting Trichomoniasis?

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease. Along with being one of the most common STDs due to its ease of transmission, it is also highly treatable and curable. Unfortunately, the reason that Trichomoniasis is so common is that many people may not realize they have the infection as it does not always cause symptoms, particularly in men.

Those that do experience symptoms may experience the following:

  • Irritation of the genital area
  • Burning, itchiness and general discomfort when urinating
  • Unusual vaginal discharge or discharge from the penis

How to Interpret Your Trichomoniasis Test Results

When you receive the results of your Trichomoniasis Test, it will be easy to understand. Unlike other tests that may show ranges of results, the Trichomoniasis Test is a straightforward negative or positive result. If there is an indication of the infection in your urine sample, the positive test will be flagged as abnormal. If there are no signs of infection in your urine due to Trichomoniasis, the test will be negative, and the results will appear as normal.

Trichomoniasis Test versus 10 Panel STD Test

The Trichomoniasis Test is helpful if you have symptoms of Trichomoniasis and suspect it may be the cause. The test will look only for signs of a Trichomoniasis infection in your urine. However, if you are looking for a more comprehensive STD panel that tests for various STDs and STIs, you may want to consider also purchasing the 10 Panel STD Test that covers the most common STDs. This panel includes both a blood and urine sample.


  • Trichomoniasis is unlikely to cause serious health complications, but it can be very uncomfortable for the infected individual. The infections can sometimes last months or years without proper treatment. Women considering having a baby or that may already be pregnant could be at risk of pregnancy-related issues due to Trichomoniasis.

  • Yes, Trichomoniasis is treated1 with antibiotics. If you receive a positive test result for Trichomoniasis, make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. The sooner you get started with the antibiotic treatment, the sooner you can begin to feel relief from symptoms. In most cases, the infection can be successfully treated in just a matter of days.
