Looking for a cause

Yesterday I went to OBGYN and I was diagnose with Trichomoniasis. I was very shock because I have never had an STD before. I have been with my current partner for a year and we have been sexually active with each other for eight months. During those times I have been back and forth to the OBGYN for various reason and the doctors didn't find anything during those times. I have been faithful and my partner claims he has been faithful so I would like to know where I could have possible contracted this STD and why did it go unnoticed?

I have read that the disease can stay in men for up to years so I was wonder did it come from a past lover of my partner.

I do not know how yuo got this but it may have been dormant and you may not have not know it. GET treated and get on with life and make sure that is all you have. Both of you should get all STD including HsV testing for 1 & 2

Yes I was tested by my OBGYN for other STDs and fortunately I tested negative. My partner is currently trying to get tested to see if he has trichomoniasis and if he does to he will move forward with treatment. I am trying to put this behind me but sometimes I wonder if there was a mistake.

I know of someone who had been caring it and had now idea and when he got married his wife got it. So I guess one can have it for a while and have no idea. If you want to know more about how long it can exist in a male or female before one realizes it call your Doc to clear up this issue that you have.
