Goal: Trichomonas vaginalis is the most common nonviral sexually transmitted infection in the United States and may be associated with adverse birth outcomes and may also increase susceptibility to or transmissibility of human immunodeficiency virus. The purpose of this analysis is to describe the epidemiology of T. vaginalis in Sexually Transmitted Disease clinics and characterize the risk factors associated with prevalent and incident T. vaginalis within the same population. Methods: We… Expand
Correlates of Incident Trichomonas vaginalis Infections Among African American Female Adolescents
TLDR
The benefits of rescreening, screening adolescents screened for or infected with C. trachomatis or N. gonorrhoeae, and associations between substance use and T. vaginalis acquisition warrant further investigation. Expand
Trichomonas vaginalis in Selected US Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinics: Testing, Screening, and Prevalence
TLDR
In this analysis, most STD clinics tested symptomatic women seeking care, in accordance with national guidelines, for T. vaginalis infection, and HIV-infected women should be screened annually. Expand
Prevalence and incidence of Trichomonas vaginalis infections in women participating in a clinical trial in Durban, South Africa
TLDR
T vaginalis infection was found to be relatively high among this cohort of women and given the association of this infection with HIV, there is an evident need for T vaginalis screening and treatment in populations at risk for both infections. Expand
Trichomonas vaginalis Prevalence, Incidence, Risk Factors and Antibiotic-Resistance in an Adolescent Population
TLDR
The study population had high prevalence and incidence of trichomoniasis, risk factors for infection, and the prevalence of metronidazole- and tinidazoles-resistant Trichomonas vaginalis in female adolescents. Expand
Distribution and risk factors of Trichomonas vaginalis infection in England: an epidemiological study using electronic health records from sexually transmitted infection clinics, 2009–2011
TLDR
For men and women, T. vaginalis infection was significantly associated with: older age compared to those aged 20–24 years, non-white ethnicity (in particular black Caribbean and black ‘other’ ethnic groups), and birth in the Caribbean vs. birth inThe UK. Expand
Prevalence and Factors Associated with Trichomonas vaginalis among HIV-1 Positive Women Attending Tertiary Hospital in Jos , Nigeria
DOI: 10.21276/sjpm.2017.2.8.7 Abstract: Trichomonas vaginalis amongst other STIs facilitate the natural history of HIV infection and may play an important role in the transmission dynamics of HIV. InExpand
Prevalence, clinical features, and diagnosis of Trichomonas vaginalis among female STI clinic attendees in Trinidad
TLDR
Prevalence of trichomoniasis is significant in the female population attending STI clinic and targeting high-risk age group between 15 and 29 years for control and prevention would be beneficial. Expand
Incidence of sexually transmitted infections among hazardously drinking women after incarceration.
INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND At the time of incarceration, women have a high prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STI). In the months after community release, women remain at high risk forExpand

TLDR
Advances in TV diagnostics are described which have led to an improved understanding of the epidemiology of this pathogen, as well as potential biologic and epidemiological interactions between TV and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Expand
Prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis infection in women attending a major gynaecological hospital in Greece: a cross-sectional study
TLDR
The study shows a relatively low percentage of trichomoniasis in the female population living in Athens, and the infection was more prevalent among immigrants, and a proportion of the infected women was asymptomatic. Expand

Comparative Prevalence of Infection With Trichomonas vaginalis Among Men Attending a Sexually Transmitted Diseases Clinic
TLDR
TV is common in men attending sexually transmitted disease clinics, especially in those 30 years or older, in whom it may account for as much urethritis as GC or CT. Expand

TLDR
This study confirmed the relationship between T. vaginalis and multiple sexual partners and suggests that the risk for T. vaginais also may be related to life‐style risk factors. Expand
Infection with Trichomonas vaginalis increases the risk of HIV-1 acquisition.
TLDR
Treatment and prevention of T. vaginalis infection could reduce HIV-1 risk in women and may also help to reduce the overall risk of infection in women with HIV. Expand
Demographic and Behavioral Predictors of Trichomonas vaginalis Infection Among Pregnant Women
TLDR
Because many of the factors predictive of increased risk of colonization have also been shown to be associated with adverseregnancy outcome, they should be considered in assessing the association of T vaginalis with adverse pregnancy outcome. Expand
Epidemiological studies on human trichomoniasis.
TLDR
The importance of the sexual partner in the epidemiology of trichomoniasis was emphasized by culturing T. vaginalis from nearly half of the spouses of infected women who submitted to examination, and by the fact that three times as many single, divorced or widowed women in the series were cured of their trichomoiasis as were women living with their husbands.

Estimating the prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis, Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and human papillomavirus infection in indigenous women in northern Australia.
TLDR
STDs are hyperendemic in this population of indigenous women and the notification data significantly underestimate their prevalence, highlighting the need to tailor control strategies to specific epidemiological features. Expand
The epidemiology of trichomoniasis in women in four African cities
TLDR
Trichomoniasis may have played a role in the spread of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa and may be one of the factors explaining the differences in levels of HIV infection between different regions in Africa. Expand
Vaginitis in a gynecologic practice in Israel: causes and risk factors.
TLDR
Candida was by far the most common pathogen detected in the population of women presenting with vaginal symptoms in Israel and the main risk factors were antibiotic use for candidiasis and lack of use of oral contraception and condom use for trichomoniasis. Expand
Prevalence of metronidazole-resistant Trichomonas vaginalis in a gynecology clinic.
TLDR
This study confirmed, in the absence of reinfection, the continuing clinical effectiveness of single-dose metronidazole for the large majority of trichomoniasis cases and suggests that high-level resistance is uncommon. Expand
