Trichomoniasis (often called "trich") is caused by a one-celled organism that is passed from one partner to another during sex. Men with trichomoniasis often don't have any symptoms and don't know that they are infected. The organism can live and multiply in the vagina for weeks or months before symptoms develop.
Foamy gray or yellow-green discharge
Intense vaginal itching, redness, and swelling at opening of vagina
Pain during sex
Trich is treated with antibiotic pills. Be sure that you:
Finish all of your medication, even if your symptoms go away.
Avoid alcohol until you're finished with your medication.
Tell your partner so that he can seek treatment and be tested for other STDs.
Avoid sex until you and your partner are both finished with treatment.

Dr. Marsha Bornt started seeing me when I was in my early twenties (20 years ago). After seeing many doctors, she was the 1st doctor to diagnose me with endometriosis. I went on to have many laparoscopies with her over the years. In my thirties I moved about 45-50 min away from Apple Hill, so I ended up seeing another doctor who performed another laparoscopy...
Staff was very friendly and professional. I had a few questions that the doctor was more than happy to answer for me. I got all that needed to be done in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with my visit. Trying to find a parking spot was very frustrating though. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
I am always glad to meet with Dr. Bornt. She is very pleasant and makes sure she has answered all your questions or concerns. She is very thorough in her approach about your medical history . . .wants only the best for you as her patient.
