My doctor said trich is only a sexually transmitted disease and you can only get it by having sex with someone who has it is that true?

True. While the organisms can survive for a period of time in the environment there is no proven role for transmission in this manner. Bear in mind that the infection can be without symptoms in most men and up to 50% of women. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Hi Doctors. How do I know if I got a sexually transmitted disease?

Testing. You did not list symptoms or exposure history. Even if you did, you need a local evaluation to confirm or exclude this collection of diagnoses. Only with a review of exposure history, exam and testing can this be answered with confidence.
