Thanks for query.
Trichomonas vaginalis is a parasitic microorganism which is the causative agent of trichomoniasis.
Trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted infection of the urogenital tract, is a common cause of vaginitis in women, while men with this infection can display symptoms of urethritis. 'Frothy', greenish vaginal discharge with a 'musty' malodorous smell is characteristic.

Infection is treated and cured with metronidazole or tinidazole.

Medication should be prescribed to both sexual partners.
Hope this answers your query.
Thank you.
