Nope, no worries: Trichomonas is not known to be transmitted by oral sex. Actually, even vaginal sex with your partner shouldn't be a problem, once you both have been treated. ...Read more

Can someone get trichomoniasis by having oral sex can some get trichomoniasis by having orol sex

Can someone get trichomoniasis  by having oral sex can some get trichomoniasis by having orol sex

No: Trichomonas is not known to be carried in the oral cavity, and not known to be transmitted by oral sex. This hasn't been carefully researched, so conceivably it is possible. But in my 40 years in the STD business, I have never seen a patient with trich whose only apparent exposure was oral-genital contact. In general, oral sex is much lower risk than vaginal or anal sex for all STDs. ...Read more

I am a gay female..if I have trichomoniasis can my girlfriend get it to by giving me oral sex?

I am a gay female..if I have trichomoniasis can my girlfriend get it to by giving me oral sex?

Not oral sex, but...: Trichomonas is not known to be transmitted by oral sex. However, your girlfriend definitely will get trich from sexual practices that allow exchange of vaginal fluids: genital apposition, fingering or other hand-genital contact, shared sex toys, etc. You should both be treated simultaneously with metronidazole or tinidazole. Good luck! ...Read more

How long can trichomoniasis survive if acquired during oral sex?

How long can trichomoniasis survive if acquired during oral sex?

Trichomoniasis: It is spread primarily through vaginal sex. There is evidence that it could be spread through mutual masturbation. Trichomoniasis generally cannot be contracted through oral or anal sex, so it's usually passed from woman to woman, woman to man, or man to woman, but not man to man. ...Read more

Hello. I was just infected with trichomoniasis by my husband. He states he got it from receiving oral sex. Is this possible?

Hello. I was just infected with trichomoniasis by my husband. He states he got it from receiving oral sex. Is this possible?

Not likely: Trichomonas does not infect the oral cavit, so rarely if ever caught by oral sex. Trich can be carried for years in the vagina and probably in men's genital tract, sometimes diagnosed long after catching it. You may never know when and where you got it. The important thing is both you and husband need treatment. Also test for gonorrhea & chlamydia, which often go along with trich. Good luck! ...Read more

Trichomonas tenax be transmited via oral sex? CSW used her teeth on my urethra, it was rough. Symptoms: itchy/discomfort urethra. It was irritated too

Trichomonas tenax be transmited via oral sex? CSW used her teeth on my urethra, it was rough. Symptoms: itchy/discomfort urethra. It was irritated too

No risk for trich: T. tenax is normal in the mouth but is not known to cause genital infection. Oral sex probably never transmits trichomonas of any kind. Urethral irritation, especially with penile discharge, could be gonorrhea or nongonococcal urethritis from the oral sex event described. But not trichomonas. See a doctor if your symptoms continue or you otherwise remain concerned. ...Read more

How is trichamoniasis actually transferred? Some places say vaginal-penile and vulva to vulva only. Some say these plus oral sex. Some say anal too.

How is trichamoniasis actually transferred? Some places say vaginal-penile and vulva to vulva only. Some say these plus oral sex. Some say anal too.

As you say.: Trichomoniasis lives in the urogenital tract. It would be extremely unlikely to find this organism being transmitted from anywhere but there. Therefore, men are not known to transmit infection to other men although women may transmit to other women. As you can imagine it is unlikely that any study will ever be done to try to prove transmission via a pure oral-genital or anal contact. ...Read more

If my boyfriend has trichomoniasis and we have protected sex will I still get infected?

If my boyfriend has trichomoniasis and we have protected sex will I still get infected?

No sex for now: Has your boyfriend really been diagnosed with trichomonas? That's a very difficult diagnosis in men. I wonder whether he actually has nongonococcal urethritis, the most common of all STDs in men. NGU is often caused by chlamydia, but only 1 in 20 cases is due to trich. In any case, you should not have sex with him at all until you have been examined and probably treated. See your doctor. ...Read more
