I married my husband in Dec 2010. I was tested for STD's January 12th 2010 and tested negative for Gonorrhea, Trichomonas, and Chlamydia. I tested positive for Gardnerella Vaginitis and was treated. I was told it was no big deal and that my hubby need not be treated. I was tested by way of smear.
In April, I started having symptoms of what I thought was a yeast infection and I had a VERY bad UTI. I was treated for the UTI and treated myself for Yeast infection OTC. My UTI came back full-force and worse than before so I was treated again with different meds and it went away. However, my "Yeast" infection only got worse.
May 14th was the day I went to the ER with swelling so bad I felt like I was sitting on my Uterus, pain/burning in my vaginal area, a yellow/white/creamy discharge that smelled like fish, painful sex, extreme itching, anal bleeding and swelling, and bleeding of the vaginal lips from the inflammation. I was again given a Vag exam and smear test/cultures done. The test showed I had Trichomonas and I am waiting on the Chlamydia and Gonorrhea tests. I have been treated for Trichomonas as well as my husband.
My husband swears he didn't cheat on me and is even becoming angry about this. I know I didn't cheat! How else could I have gotten this?
I am sorry to hear you are going through all this. Trichomonas is one pathogen that has been reported to be "dormant infectious" meaning you could have had it for a while and it just became active. Also, you asked how else you could have gotten this, another way I have read the doc's saying is that from bacteria from your rectum to your vagina. I hope you wipe from vaginal area to the rectal area direction and NOT the other way around.
