Trichomoniasis is the most common curable STI. Millions of people are infected each year in the United States.
Testing involves having a health care provider take a swab sample from the infected area to examine under a microscope or send to a lab.
It depends on the lab used by your health care provider, but usually a couple of days to a week. If your test is positive, you may be asked to come back for another test in a few months.
