  Sexually transmitted diseases - Trichomoniasis
 
I suddenly had a really bad vaginal discharge and my doctor has diagnosed trichomoniasis. What are the implications?

Trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite and causes a green bubbly discharge in about half of the women infected. The rest have no symptoms. Having the infection late in pregnancy can cause early onset of labour, so it is important that you take the medication diligently and that your doctor check that you are clear of infection. Once that is done, there should be no further implications for you and your baby.
