Abnormal musty or fishy odor.
Pain with sexual intercourse even if you use a lubricant such as K-Y Jelly
Patchy red areas on the genitals or on the cervix (strawberry cervix).
Painful urination (dysuria) or frequent urination
Discomfort in the lower abdomen. This is not a common symptom of trich and may mean another problem is present.
Men rarely have symptoms but still need treatment. If symptoms are present, they may include:
Abnormal discharge from the penis.
A burning feeling after urination.
Irritation and redness of the tip of the penis.
Trich can have symptoms similar to those of other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea
