I had a pap smear and was told I had trichomoniasis. I never had any symptoms nor did my boyfriend and I cheat on each other. I'm assuming I contracted it last year from an ex because I had a few symptoms but thought it was a yeast infection. I used monistat and the symptoms went away, never had any more until today which is 3 days after I found out I had it.
A PAP smear is primarily reviewed by a pathologist so I would trust the results. Trichomonas is hard to confuse with anything else. Possibly you had it for a long time and possibly this is new. I really can't say. It would seem you would have become very miserable if you'd gotten it last year.
