I was dignosed with the std Trich and i had a few questions about my case...

-as a women is it possible to have trich dormaiment in ur body for long periods of time with no symtoms?

-i have been wit my partner for over 1 yr and have only been sleeping with him and my partner was tested and his test came back negative and his doc took swabs n blood so is it possible i didnt get it from him.

-he swears to me there is no one else and he doesnt have any symptoms and has come up negative in all his test is it possible i was harboring trich in my body with no syptoms?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Trichomonas vaginalis is spread through sexual contact with an infected partner. This include penis-to-vagina intercourse or vulva-to-vulva contact. The parasite cannot survive in the mouth or rectum.

The disease can affect both men and women, but the symptoms differ between the two groups. The infection usually does not cause symptoms in men and goes away on its own in a few weeks.  If symptoms develop, it may take about 328 days after being infected.

Here's a link that might be helpful
