Trichomoniasis is the most common non viral STI in the United States. Trichomoniasis is a condition caused by the microscopic parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. It is spread through sex. Infection is more common in women than in men. Older women are more likely than younger women to have been infected with trichomoniasis. Women who have trichomoniasis are at an increased risk of infection with other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
