I have been treated for trichomoniasis, my partner and I have not had sex at all since. He will be treated Monday, can I be re infected without sex?
Only by sex: Trichomonas is an STD and is transmitted only by sex. You cannot be reinfected unless and until you have sex with an infected partner.

Therefore, apparently new infections sometimes are actually previous infections that weren't cured and need more prolonged metronidazole Rx. ...Read more
