What were your symptoms?
Since when are you having this issue?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
After my yearly ob/gyn check up, a week later, my lymph nodes were extremely swollen, I then had back pain. I was just prescribed an anti biotic today. Could it be possible i contracted this from the speculum. I am not sleeping around.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
Trichomoniasis is sexually transmitted disease.
However, it can remain without symptoms for long,particularly in men.
It is unlikely from the speculum.
The instrument is sterilized before use.
Your husband should also get the treatment.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
