About 70 percent of infected people do not have any symptoms of infection. If people do get symptoms, it usually happens within 5 to 28 days after they come in contact with the parasite. The symptoms in women include:

  • Heavy, yellow-green or gray vaginal discharge 
  • Discomfort during sex 
  • Vaginal odor 
  • Painful urination

Women also may have irritation and itching of the genital area and, on rare occasions, lower abdominal pain.

Most infected men do not have symptoms. If they do, the symptoms include a thin, whitish discharge from the penis and painful or difficult urination and ejaculation.
