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.
