Suspect of trichomoniasis... My sex partner is getting treatment... I don't have symptoms, but I had them,didn't get treatment?
Trichomonas: You should be treated. Men often are colonized without symptoms, and without clearing this you are likely to reinfect your sexual partner and having it increases the risk of acquiring other STDs.

Is there any other way of a getting trichomoniasis other than sex; example weak immune system from sinus infections, staph infections?
See answer: Trichomoniasis, a parasite, is almost always passed on sexually. Trichomoniasis can also survive on infected objects like sheets, towels, underwear, and sex toys and can be transmitted by sharing them, though this mode of transmission is quite unusual. A weakened immune system may increase your susceptibility to this or any other STD. Although symptoms vary, most men and women are asymptomatic. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can i get trichomoniasis from giving oral sex to my boyfriend? I'm still a virgin though and i had oral sex with my boyfriend for the first evr
Sexually transmitted: Trichomonas is sexually transmitted; that's the only way to catch it. However, trich can remain dormant in women for several years, so it's common for it to be diagnosed in women who are at no apparent risk for STDs. The main symptoms are increased vaginal discharge, usually colored (yellow, brownish, etc) and often with strong, fishy odor. Other STDs are common in women with trich; get tested. ...Read more
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
