Some men and women may not have symptoms. If a woman has symptoms there may be a frothy, yellow-green discharge with a strong odor. There may be uncomfortable sexual intercourse, vaginal itching and irritation.

If men should have symptoms there is usually an irritation inside the penis, mild discharge, burning with urination and or burning with ejaculation.
Some women with trichomonal vulvovaginitis often experience little to no symptoms of their disease. However, there are a few common symptoms in women diagnosed with trichomonal vulvovaginitis.
