Best Answer

Trichomoniasis is a parasite that lives in the vaginal canal in females, and the urethra in males. It is specifically transferred by sexual contact. If neither partner claims to have it, then neither partner should contract it. If someone has contracted it, then someone else has a lot of explaining to do.
Just like any STD, Trichomoniasis is transmitted during sexual contact, be it penis to vagina, vulva to vulva, or occasionally penile/anal contact. Therefore it is not possible for a partner to spontaneously develop a trichomoniasis infection.

That being said, Trichomonaisis can be asymptomatic in many, or may simply be latent for a period of time and not producing any symptoms.
