    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
