Dear Anon_22979,

Trichomonas doesn't care what gender you are. It's spread by sexual contact and according to the article, "Trichomoniasis is the most common curable STD in young, sexually active women. An estimated 7.4 million new cases occur each year in women and men."

Any sex partners you've had should see their doctors for treatment, too. Otherwise, it can be passed back and forth. Please discuss it with your doctor or a health clinic for more information and specific answers.

Yours in health,

Byroney
