Should I Tell My Partner If I Have Trichomoniasis?

Yes, your partner could have the infection too. You and your partner should be treated at the same time to keep from infecting each other again. Be sure to tell all of your recent sex partners also, so they can get tested and treated.

Comment from: Lee, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: February 20

I told him I had an infection. He asked if he should be seeing a doctor. I told him it would not hurt and he did. I got my results first, we talked about it, he was ready to speak to his doctor and take the medications, so we can continue our love life. He was super cool man about the whole thing. I love him for being a great man.
