when you say dormant im guessing you mean without showing any signs of infectiong..will most people who contract a std wouldnt show symptoms but trich can be treated so follow up with your doc. for medicines to take and follow up testing . keep us posted

A pap smear by itself doesn't test for trich.  You need to find out if you were tested for it last year.
