Featured Resource: A Four-Part Series on Trichomoniasis
With roughly two million cases in the U.S., trichomoniasis (“trich”) is a common STI that deserves more attention. Learn more about this common STI in our four-part expert series. You can listen below or check out the entire series on YouTube.
Most cases of trich don’t have obvious symptoms but undetected trich can make it more like to contract or transmit other STIs (like HIV) and the infection is linked to pre-term delivery and low-birth weight babies. Today we chat with Dr. Bobbie Van Der Pol, a professor in the schools of medicine and public health with the University of Alabama, Birmingham where she’s a scientist with the UAB Center for Women’s Reproductive Health. Dr. Van Der Pol is also president of the International Society for STD Research.
