This is very confusing! And the amount of ppl that have read about with the same cases as mine are large. I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Had a break down n was ready for a divorce. I have been w my husband 15 yrs and I know I have not been w anyone else but him. He says the same. How can an STD be dormant n for so long?
I was diagnosed when I went in to have my IUD removed, it was 2 yrs over due, so I had it in for 7 yrs. I was having abdominal pains for the past yr and a half n my dr had told me that it was probably that the IUD needed to be removed. Two days later he called me to let me know that I needed to pick up the antibiotics n take them right away.
When he told me what the diagnosis was I was devastated n blamed my husband (of course) my husband then went in to see his dr n he told him that getting tested was a waste that he should take the medication n he did. I go in to see my dr for a pap n for a full check on STDs next week. We have not had sex since the diagnosed me, I want to make sure it's all clear before taking the next step.
This so confusing n I hope that there is research being done on trich, I would like some answers. I have 3 kids, 2 boys n a girl. I keep reading that trich can be acquired by using somes towel that is infected or using a toilet seat that is dirty from someone that's infected...I'm wondering if my kids should be tested?
Very confused n disoriented since there really isn't much information to go by.View Thread
