I was recently diagnosed with trichomoniasis. My partner informed me that his last partner, which was 8 years ago also contracted this disease but supposedly he was'nt the carrier. My question is could he be asymptomatic and that's why I now have it. Can this disease lay dormant for this length of time since it is not a virus but a disease? Please help me before I go postal on him. We were just intimate recently after a month of separation from each other due to our jobs. My first response was that he had an affair, but a friend said he could be asymptomatic.

Your friend is incorrect.

Asymptomatic means that someone doesn't have symptoms. It doesn't mean they aren't infected with this particular agent.
