No: Not unless you are having intercourse in the jacuzzi! Trichomonas is a parasite that is sexually transmitted. Even if someone else is in the jacuzzi has the infection, it cannot pass on to you unless you had sex. Hope this helps!

TRICHOMONAS/STD: Trichomonas is an STD that you can get via sexual intercourse. Potentially if you had unprotected sex in the Jacuzzi. Risk may be decreased due to the temperature. You need an exam/labs and STD screen to be fully evaluated.
