Trichomoniasis (also called "trich" and pronounced "trick") is a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) caused by a germ that grows and reproduces very well in a warm, moist, slightly acidic environment such as the vagina. Once considered almost entirely a "female disease," medical science now recognizes that males also can have the infection in the urinary tract. However, most infected males have no symptoms. Rather, they simply "carry" the infection.
