Customer Question

JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

If you were both monogamous and did not have trich, you would not get it.

However, it is sexually transmitted.

It can also be carried chronically.

But you don't catch it other ways.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Chronically means long duration. How can it be for that long period of time without one or the other's knowledge or any syptoms?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

Some people can be carriers without symptoms.

That is just the fact.

Please click a positive.
