What tests and exams did you have that led to a diagnosis of a trich infection?

I had done a urine sample and a Pap smear to determine my symptoms of trich infection.

I had a Pap done July 2013 by my obstetrician, no symptoms and nothing came up. I got back with my boyfriend and father of my son in August 2013 (we separated before I had found out about the pregnancy in April 2013). In January 2014 I went in for my 6 week postpartum checkup. I didn't know I was having symptoms (discharge, itchiness, etc.) due to the postpartum recovery process, until I got the call from my obstetrician telling me I had trich.

I was informed by my obstetrician-gynecologist yesterday that I had trichomoniasis after a PAP test I had over a month ago. On the last PAP I had it showed no signs of any problems.
