Persistent NGU?: Presumably evaluated for other STDs, right? Chlamydia and gonorrhea ruled out? Diagnosed with nongonoccal urethritis (NGU)? Men usually are treated for trich only if symptoms persist after previous NGU treatment. But trich rarely causes symptoms in men, no surprise Rx didn't help. Scant clear discharge with urination may not be abnormal, but return to clinic if continues or you remain concerned.

White sometimes light yellowish discharge but not a std, bv, yeast infection or trichomoniasis. Large amount of discharge before and after period?

See answer: Discharge is common to all women and helps vaginas stay healthy by regularly flushing them out and maintaining their ph. Most women have some vaginal discharge throughout their menstrual cycle. Discharges that are relatively whitish, clear, or yellow when dried and unassociated with pain or other symptoms more likely to be insignificant and non-infectious. Recommend good gyn exam and culture.

MAybe: Trichomoniasis is a vaginal infection so some bleeding from the inflammation is not surprising. Hopefully you were also tested for other infections and had a pelvic exam to make sure everything else was ok.

I had discharge and got tested and result trichomonas. He penetrated for a few seconds and said he had no sex in two years. How possible is that?

Unlikely: I would avoid, if he has trich he might have something else too. Although sometimes men don't have symptoms of sexually transmitted infections, it seems unlikely that 2 years would go by without symptoms.

See your doctor: The description suggests either bacterial vaginosis or trichomoniasis, but without examining vaginal secretions it is impossible to diagnose over the internet. See your family physician or regular ob/gyn.

2 views: Failure to treat trichomoniasis during pregnancy may result in preterm birth, low birth weight, and other adverse fetal outcomes. Asymptomatic pregnant women may defer treatment to after 37 weeks. If you have bothersome symptoms and are diagnosed with trich, oral metronidazole, which is generally considered safe for the baby. Abstain from sexual intercourse until delivery or risk re-infection.
