Hi J.breez

Thank you for your post!

I'm sorry you're going through this and now dealing with Trich. It’s the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) among young sexually active women today. Women are much more likely to contract the disease than men, and around 7.4 million new cases are reported each year.

It is not likely for trichomoniasis to be passed on between men, but women can contract the disease from either a male or a female. The condition is caused by a parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. In men, this parasite infects the urethra and usually doesn’t cause any symptoms. (The only signs might be mild burning and irrtation.) In women, the parasite infects the vagina and is much more dangerous.

So your husband is wrong when he says he couldn't have it a year ago and have no symptoms. Since he is the one who had an affair, he'd not really in a position to start pointing fingers at you. He's projecting his embarrassment onto you. Since you had symptoms the day after he had sex with you, clearly he was the "doner" of the infection.

Make sure you and he get treated properly. As to his treatment of you, please stay strong and don't allow him to blame you or treat you badly.

Best,
Susan
