carry trich buy test negative?

I was diagnosed with trichomonas and bv a few months ago, was treated, but my partner claimed to test negative when he went to the doctor to be checked.  This was very suprising to me, as we always used condoms, and I wasnt sleeping with anyone else.  After everything was resolved, we abstained for another 3 months.  I only recently began sleeping with him again, and have noticed symptoms a few weeks later.  My main question is: can a man carry trichomonas for several months, but test negative?  And how likely is transmission when a condom is used?

It can be difficult to detect trichomonas in men.  Maybe you should bring him to your doctor. They may treat him as well if he is there with you on the assumption that you are getting it from him.
