It is not possible to diagnose trichomoniasis based on symptoms alone. For both men and women, your health care provider may ask you to provide a urine sample or may use (or ask you to use) a cotton swab to get a sample from your vagina (for women) or urethra (for men) to test for trichomoniasis. Self test kits are also available for you to collect samples at home and mail back to a lab.
