Yes: Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the parasite trichomonas vaginalis. The infection usually does not cause symptoms in men and goes away on its own in a few weeks. When one partner is diagnosed, the general recommendation is that both get treated and for prevention purposes no sex or at least use condoms until cured. See: http://goo. Gl/n5ziq.

I have had abnormal paps two years in a row and tested positive for HPV. Now I have an elevated WBC. Could this be from an untreated or dormant STD?
Yes: It can be elevated from any infection or STD.
Depends on the STD: You could have an STD and be asymptomatic — without any signs or symptoms. In fact, this happens with a lot of STDs. Even though you have no symptoms, you're still at risk of passing the infection along to your sex partners. That's why it's important to use protection, such as a condom, during sex. And visit your doctor on a regular basis for STD screening.
Depends: Which std are you referring to? Syphilis and HIV can exist without being symptomatic for very long periods of time. Carriage of some organisms without their creating clinical disease is another possibility. The question must be more specific and delineate the particular infection and why you are asking the question.
Which STD?: And what have you been exposed to since the last testing? This is a complicated question and needs more definition.
Depends: While some stis are considered curable and can be cleared with a short course of treatment, others may be take more time. Some infections, such hiv, for example, presently are not considered curable. Speak with your provider about your specific condition. As with any sti, practicing safer sex protects you and your partner (s) from further infection / exposure.
Saturday night fun?: Different stds have different incubation periods. It ranges from one week for gonorrhea, trichomonas and chlamydia to 6 months for hiv. That is why you must be very careful whom you take as a sex partner. Syphilis and hepatitis take about 6 weeks to detect. Discuss the specifics with your doctor.
