I am 55 years old and met my husband 7 years ago. We each had blood tests before having sex to rule out any issues. I never knew that a blood test wasn't enough! Around the time I also started menopause. I have had vaginal issues ever since I met him, i.e. BV, yeast infections. It was even suggested by one of my healthcare providers that I might be allergic to his sperm! The gynocologist I had been seeing for years never thought to test me for any STDs because I had been celibate for years before I met my husband. I recently moved and chose a new gyno. I give her a rundown of my problems for the past several years and she decides to check for STDs....and whaddayaknow, I have trich. And I've had it for 7 years!! I KNOW my husband does NOT cheat and I certainly do not. He had sex with a drug user before he met me and although I've had metronidazole before, he had not so he kept reinfecting me. If it wasn't for this website, I don't know what I would have done in terms of my marriage. We are both on metro and I'm so glad we can move forward from this!!
