Can trich lie dormant (with no symptoms) in a woman? if so how long before symptoms appear?

Unlikely: Either you have it or you don't. If you are properly treated and are careful in your sexual activity you should be fine. If symptoms recurring then you may be getting re-exposed to it. Talk with your partner.
