Trich

08/31/2009

Question:

i recently had symptoms of trich and was diagnosed. does that mean that my partner recently contracted it?

Answer:

I can't tell you when your partner contracted it, but men don't seem to harbor the infection nearly as long as women. It is typically thought to be a recent infection in men rather than a prolonged or persistent infection.
