What is trichomonal vulvovaginitis?

A Answers (1)

  • Trichomonal vulvovaginitis is inflammation of the vagina and vulva caused by the sexually transmitted disease trichomoniasis. The vulva is characterized as the external parts of the female genitalia, and includes the labia (vaginal lips), clitoris, vaginal opening, urinary opening, and the space between the vagina and the anus (perineum). This type of infection can cause pain during urination or sexual intercourse, genital redness and itching, and a foul-smelling vaginal discharge.
