Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Has your boyfriend been fully examined? Many men do not have symptoms even if they are infected, but women often do. He needs to be tested if he has not already done so. You can go with him for moral support.

Trich is highly contagious but not all women show symptoms straight away so you may have gotten it from another previous partner.

Both of you will need to be treated regardless of symptoms. You can read more here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/trichomoniasis

Best,
Susan
