In brief: Probably not

The vast majority of infections are from direct sexual contact with an infected individual.
The organism dies very quickly on cold surfaces and so the odds of contagion are extremely small. But finding trichomonas in men is very difficult on a routine test, so they need to be treated based on their partner's test.

In brief: No

Trichomonas is a sexually transmitted vaginal infection.
A person can only get it through sexual or genital to genital contact.
