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

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 cavity, 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

I’ve read that you can get it from oral && then read you can’t, I’m confused. What’s the likelihood of getting trichomoniasis from oral sex?

I’ve read that you can get it from oral && then read you can’t, I’m confused. What’s the likelihood of getting trichomoniasis from oral sex?

You are right!: The literature says both. Whenever, I am uncertain which resource is correct - I usually turn the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It states " It is not common for the parasite to infect other body parts, like the hands, mouth, or anus.". I interpret this to mean that does not mean zero transmission to mouth.

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
