I keep getting reinfected with trichomonas for almost a year now. Could having this infection for a long time cause some more serious complications?

Trichomoniasis: Your sexual partner is giving this back to you. This is a std. Get tested for others, get your partner treated and if you get this again, get rid of your partner or use very safe sex techniques. By itself, not likely to cause severe problems, but may be accompanied by other stds that can be very severe.

I was wondering if and how long trichomonas can lie dormant in a man or woman. My partner cheated on me many years ago, but swears that he hasn't done it since then. I need to know asap. Thank you.

See doctor: You have a question as to cheating from your partner and the risks of sexually transmitted diseases. Se your doctor with your partner. There are deep trust issues at stake and the concern for std's. Trichomonas is not a virus. There are new vaccines for prevention of the std which causes a form of cervical cancer. Explore your concerns with your partner and your physician.
