Answer

Women may experience various complications associated with trichomoniasis. One study reported a higher risk of pelvic inflammatory disease in women with trichomoniasis. [55] Other studies have reported a 1.9-fold risk of tubal infertility in women with trichomoniasis. [56] Trichomoniasis may also play a role in cervical neoplasia and postoperative infections. [6]
