My husband and I were separated back in late August of 2013, I had my PAP test on the December 2nd 2013 and today I found out I was positive for trich; we just got back together the middle of November 2013.

I started having this fishy/foul odor and did not know how to get rid of it. I had it for about a month. I was only with one person and I asked him about whether he was having sex with anyone else and of course, he said no. I didn't tell him about it because I know it had to be him that I got it from. I went to the emergency room because I had abdominal pain and was treated.
