Answer

In symptomatic men, T vaginalis infection usually manifests as urethritis. As many as 11% of nongonococcal urethritis cases in men are caused by T vaginalis. [64] Complications of untreated trichomoniasis in men include prostatitis, epididymitis, urethral stricture disease, and infertility, potentially resulting from decreased sperm motility and viability.
