The simplest-single-celled organisms, unlike other single-celled organisms are able to move, due to the presence of flagella and independent existence outside the infected organism. In its structure, the simplest resemble ordinary cells, the totality of which is an integral body. The difference is that the simplest, despite the simplicity of its structure, exist as a separate holistic organism

Trichomonas that parasite in the human body, there are three types:
Trcihomonas elongatа – lives in the mouth.
Trichomonas hominis-lives in the human intestine, feeds on various bacteria, red blood cells (blood cells).
Trichomonas vaginalis-located in the lower genitourinary tract:

Normally, the microflora in the vagina is represented by the so-called Daederlein sticks or lactobacilli, which in the course of their life acidify the environment, thereby preventing the spread and development of other pathogenic bacteria and parasites.

Under these circumstances, the body's defenses weaken and create conditions favorable for the development of various pathological agents, including trichomonades. Pathogenic to humans is vaginal Trichomonas.
Once on the mucous membrane of the vagina, Trichomonas secrete special substances that allow you to firmly attach to its walls. In addition, the vaginal trichomonade has the property of producing special enzymes that break down the surface cells of the vaginal mucosa. In response to the aggressive effect of trichomonades, in the vaginal mucosa there are inflammatory processes, which are expressed by the following changes:
Sharp redness and swelling of the mucous membrane
Exfoliation of the surface layer of cells
Melkotochechnye hemorrhage
Local temperature rise

In trichomoniasis, the vaginal mucosa is primarily affected. The mucous membrane of the urethra (urethra), bladder. The excretory ducts of the large glands of the vaginal vestibule (secrete a secret to reduce friction during sexual intercourse), are involved in the pathological process much less often.
When describing clinical symptoms, it is very important to consider the age of patients. So trichomoniasis mainly occurs in young women of reproductive age from 18 to 45 years, that is, leading an active sexual life

The incubation period, that is, the time elapsed from the moment of penetration of parasites to the appearance of the first clinical symptoms, it is approximately from 3-5 days to 20-30 days. In this period of time, Trichomonas are just beginning to multiply and do not cause significant damage to the mucous membrane. Women in this period of time feel healthy, there are no symptoms of trichomoniasis.

For acute Trichomonas colpitis are characteristic:
Unbearable itching, burning in the vagina, around the labia. Itching is due to the irritating effect of trichomonades on the vaginal walls and foamy secretions (secret).
Redness and combing of the skin in the perineal area, labia (large and small). Appear due to itching in these areas.
Frothy discharge with a characteristic unpleasant smell. The volume of discharge depends on the phase of the disease. From the abundant whiter (highlight) yellow, acute progressive course, to the meager selections gray, in chronic indolent process. Foamy and an abundance of secret appears as a result of activity in parallel with Trichomonas, a special type of bacteria that produce gas.

With good high immunity, the disease can occur in a hidden chronic form. In this case, there may be no one or another symptom, or all symptoms are mild or absent. Inflammatory changes are also insignificant. Chronic process may occasionally deteriorate. More often this occurs in the period before the start of a new menstrual cycle, a few days before the onset of menstruation. The exacerbation is associated with a decrease in the amount of estrogen, which are actively involved in the renewal of the surface cells of the vaginal mucosa, to all other contribute to the acidification of the internal vaginal environment, and Trichomonas eat glycogen with which, with the life of lactobacilli, the internal environment of the vagina becomes acidic.
