The Purpose of the Trichomonas Vaginalis Test
Trichomonas vaginalis (or T. vaginalis) is a parasite that causes trichomoniasis, which is a sneaky sexually transmitted infection (STI) when it comes to men. While many women with this infection get lesions, discharge, or complications such as vaginitis (or premature labor or low birth weight if they are pregnant), men often don’t experience symptoms, which means they can unwittingly transmit the infection to their partner. That’s why a Trichomonas vaginalis RNA QL TMA test can be helpful in detecting this common disease early, so men who have the infection can get the treatment they need to stay healthy and keep their partner healthy, too. Ordering an STI or STD test from Personlabs gives you convenience and privacy as well as fast, accurate results.
What Does the Trichomonas RNA Test Measure?
This test looks for T. vaginalis RNA in your urine to determine if you are infected. The TMA in the test stands for transcription-mediated amplification, the process used to detect the RNA in the sample.
Who Should Take a Trich Test for Men?
This test is often recommended for men who have multiple partners or practice unprotected sex. If their female partner has symptoms associated with trichomoniasis, then they should also be tested.
Trichomonas vaginalis RNA Qualitative TMA Males Test Preparation
You should avoid urinating at least one hour before giving your sample; ideally, you would collect your specimen from your first urine sample in the morning. Your lab can give you complete instructions to ensure a sterile sample.
