Trichomoniasis : Is an std caused by the trichomonas vaginalis parasite. Up to 70% of people w trichomoniaisis infection are asymptomatic. Because it could be silent- one of you may have been infected before this relationship began ; be unaware of it. Or if could be a new infection if one of you was not monogamous.
