Screening for Trichomonas vaginalis in a Large High-Risk Population: Prevalence among Men and Women Determined by Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Men and women attending family planning and sexually transmitted disease clinics for sexually transmitted infection screening in 2012 to 2013 were tested for Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) using a sensitive nucleic acid amplification test. T. vaginalis prevalence in urogenital samples was 11.3% in 77,740 women and 6.1% in 12,604 men, and increased with age in both sexes.
