I have trichomonas and a female my male partner tested negative

Harriet40

Hi there, I was diagnosed with trichomonas at a clinic and I had horrible symptoms that came on around 5 days after we last had sex and got progressively and quickly worse....masses of discharge, swelling, red itchy all of it. I had already split up from him by the time I went to the clinic and had reason to suspect him of 'foul play' I told him to get tested and he said he went, told them what to test for then 5 days later his results came back negative......how can this be? I have read that men don't get symptoms often and he said he hadn't but I've also been told men can often have false negatives. He also wasn't given any antibiotics prophylactic which I thought he should have been...so he says. This has been really awful because I had a colposcopy late last year and had nothing wrong with me then and have only slept with him since......can anyone help?

    Thinks this is a sexually transmitted disease so if you have only been with him it's from him i

    He may have cheated and lying to you saying he clean so he seems like he hasn't cheated or got nothing was he the type to cheat and lie, x

      Hi there,

      Thankyou for commenting.

      I did have reason to suspect something may have happened and when I went to the clinic I thought I must be right....but he has told me he tested negative, showed me the text the clinic sent him. I know men can falsely test negative and this has affected me badly as I have no answers.....of course they also gave him the treatment in case it was positive so even if he was tested again it would come back negative anyway.

      I have been told because of the speed and severity of the symptoms he must have given it to me as he is the only partner I've had for well over a year

    I've had the same problem testing positive for trichomoniasis and my partner testing negative. I haven't been with anyone but him and I believe he's been faithful to me. He got treated the same time I did the last time but I have it back again. My conclusion is either He's lying or he wasn't given enough medication to cure it.

    Yes you can catch it without having sex...but the most common why people get it I'd through sex...i googled it

    I had the same thing happen to me. Twice. It has caused some strain in our relationship as we both contend we have been faithful and i believe he has been. And know i have been.

      Hello- I am going thru the same thing now -I’m 55 and have been marred for 21 it’s . My husband ha been unfaithful. He was just tested and says he was negative and now says it was me , which I know I have not been. I have been on the web trying to find out how his tests came back negative when I know it has to have come from him . It does say u can get it from hands , toys , dirty towels  but I still need to know - if he passed this to me how can he be negative ?

    I had the same problem when I went to the hospital I was 6 months pregnant and found out I had it..he went and got tesetd and he came back negative which blew my mind because he was the only person I was having sex with and I couldn't understand where the hell it came from..the only difference is they gave him the 4 pills to take because he came in contact with me and the funny part was when I initially found out he came clean and told me he had had sex with someone else and the condom popped

    Forgot to mention the entire time I had it I wasn't having any kind of sex but it was taking forever to get rid of they kept giving me medicine and it would work for a week or so but the yellow discharge would come right back..it took me 6 hospital visits within the time spand of 2and a half months to finally have the doctors tell me that it finally went away mind you I was pregnant the whole time dealing with it. It was the most depressing situations I have ever been in
