Can men be carriers of trichomonas and have no symptoms? How long can this STD stay dormant?

In brief: 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.
