I have taken a pap every year but this yr it came back positive for trich.retested for it specifically it was still positive.all other std negative. my husband claim he has not cheated. can i have had it all these yrs and the pap missed it
Pap's don't really test for Trich. I believe it can be tested for with a pap. I know women can have it for years and not know it, also there is a debate going on if it can be aquired by other non-sexual means. Some say yes others say no.
You can have him test also, in men it is more difficult to test.
I don't think Trich means that someone cheated. Until proven other wise I believe Trich can be aquired by non-sexual means. But I always defer to a Dr's thoughts/knowledge.
