trichinosis ? please help
1997ws6 posted:
just came back from the Dr and found out that I have trichinosis, I have been faithful to my boyfriend, we got back together at the end of June and I have had these symptoms for almost 3.5 weeks. the symptoms I was told were based on a mans load and since he pulls out thats why its more of a minor version of trichinosis. I have never had a std before I thought it was a yeast infection because i have been taking a bunch of medication because i have been sick on and off since September when I endured the most traumatic / stressful events to date in my life and I am still high stressed out. (which has nothing to do with my boyfriend)

But does this mean that he has been unfaithful? OR could he have had trichinosis before we got back together and it just surfaced now b/ of my lowered immune system and stress levels? Also it is only in my vulva area near my clitoris where i have irratation and itching at. one night i felt like he was rubbing me raw there and then we have intercourse and that is where he chose to leave his load so could this spiked the trichinosis?

I just want to know if he could have had this before we got back together and if it's possible for us to have sex 3.5 months before a "outbreak" or whatever its called happens?

Also how do men contract this parasite? i want to no more information i was given 4 pills to take for me and my Dr gave me 4 pills to give to him to take,

If you truly have been diagnosed with trichinosis, this has nothing to do with sexual contact:
