I told my wife straight up, I had an affair, more of a one night stand. We both got treated for trich infection. I am waiting for her to decide what she wants to do. I"ll move on no matter what.

I told him I had an infection. He asked if he should be seeing a doctor. I told him it would not hurt and he did. I got my results first, we talked about it, he was ready to speak to his doctor and take the medications, so we can continue our love life. He was super cool man about the whole thing. I love him for being a great man.

I went to a prompt care and I suspected something was wrong. I asked to test for STD. Later that afternoon u got a call I had trichomoniasis. I had never heard of it. I went to a gynecologist, had swab test, and determined it was trichomoniasis. I got medication, told my husband and he told me I was diagnosed wrong. Guilty if you ask me.

When I was diagnosed with a trich infection, I went crazy and started crying. I have been with the same person for 4 years and have been faithful the whole time. It hurt and disappointed me badly. The funny thing is, right before I got tested I accused him of cheating. This diagnosis right here has only assured me I was right.

I am afraid to tell my partner I have trich because he is married, so I got treated and it returned and I don’t know what to do or how to tell him. He is the only man I slept with.

I went in for a Pap smear test and to figure out what the infection I had was. I found out it was trichomoniasis. My doctor said there are rare other causes of getting it (not sexually transmitted), but they are rare. My husband swears that in no way has he been with anyone else since we've been together. I wonder if anyone has ever gotten it without the sexual contact.

I just started cursing him out because I know he was the only one I was with. He did not admit that he cheated but once it was over he told me the truth. Now it is 5 years it is gone.
