What is Trichomoniasis Testing?
Trichomoniasis testing is used to identify the presence of the protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis in the body.1 Spread through the transmission of sexual fluids, trichomoniasis is one of the most common non-viral STDs in the world. As the STD typically displays no visible symptoms, trichomoniasis testing is the only definitive way to determine infection.
Fortunately, a trichomoniasis test involves nothing more than a simple urine sample and, if detected and treated in a timely manner, the disease is completely curable! With Priority STD Testing, the process is simple, discreet, and fast.Get Tested Now - $109

How Trichomoniasis Testing Works
Trichomoniasis testing is conducted by way of a simple urine test. In order to ensure an accurate trichomoniasis test, you’ll want to refrain from urinating for at least an hour prior to your test. Once a sample is collected, it is processed in one of our CLIA-certified laboratories to determine the presence of the bacteria. Results are provided within 24 to 72 hours after collection through our private online portal.
If you do test positive, you may want to consider getting tested for other STDs (namely HIV) as the presence of this STI can make it easier to contract and spread HIV, especially in women.2 With Priority STD Testing, the process is swift, non-invasive and results are never sent to your home or insurance provider.
Why Order Trichomoniasis Testing
Self-diagnosing trichomoniasis is virtually impossible as the disease rarely causes visible symptoms.1 Therefore, it is not uncommon to contract trichomoniasis and pass it along to other sexual partners without knowing you’ve been infected in the first place.
Even if you feel healthy, the infection can still be passed to other sexual partners and increase the risk of other STDs. Therefore, the sooner you get tested, the sooner you can start a treatment regimen and get back on the path to wellness.
When to Get Tested
Trichomoniasis has a latency period ranging from 4 days to 28 days, so you’ll want to take this into consideration before getting tested.2 Testing too early after contracting an STD or STI may result in a false negative. However, if you do begin to experience trichomoniasis symptoms, you’ll want to order your test and stop by a testing center as soon as you’re able.
Fortunately, if caught and treated early, trichomoniasis is one of the easiest STDs to cure. Generally, prescription treatment consists of a single dose of metronidazole or another antibiotic. After treatment, the infection is typically gone within a few days.2 It’s suggested that patients refrain from sexual activity for a week after treatment just to be safe.
For your convenience, Priority STD Testing offers treatment for trichomoniasis with a prescription order sent to your pharmacy of choice for just $65.

Even after you have selected a testing site, you can switch locations any time you wish. Your lab order can be used at all Quest Diagnostics collection sites within the same state without having to change your lab order. If you wish to test in a different state, simply call to speak with a care counselor who can update your requisition. There are no fees associated with switching testing sites either.
How accurate are my test results?
All of the tests we offer are FDA approved and performed in CLIA certified labs to ensure the highest level of accuracy. Some STDs require that you wait a period of time after sexual contact before getting tested. Each disease has a different latency period, so understanding when to test is important. If you have questions, our care counselors are happy to walk you through the process, start to finish.
Do I need to fast before getting tested?
No fasting is required for any type of test we offer. If you are testing for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis, please ensure that you have not urinated for at least one hour prior to visiting the testing center.
Do you accept insurance?
To use your health insurance, we are able to provide all of the necessary information to file a self-claim. We utilize Quest Diagnostics which is the largest lab network in the nation, therefore most healthcare providers will offer some form of reimbursement. We will never directly bill your insurance to ensure your results are completely private and kept off of your permanent health record.
