Brief Answer:
Better trust him- explained below...

Detailed Answer:
Hi my dear

I understand your concern.

You say to have been diagnosed with Trichomoniasis. May I know your symptoms? Or the diagnosis was after a routine testing?

Next, the symptoms will appear within 5 or 28 days after exposure to the infected person.
So, if you just started dating, then, should recall other personal histories both of you might have had in past.

Most of the time, the infection is asymptomatic; only few cases develop symptoms.

So better trust him and get both of you treated adequately.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
Get him tested for Trichomonas too.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Ok, then, get him tested for Trichomonas too.

Furthermore, he might have caught Trichomonas before you've been dating, but unfortunately you finished having the symptoms.

On the other hand, you might have the infection before dating with this boyfriend but now developed the symptoms. It is true and still unexplainable why only certain people develop the symptoms of infection.

All the best.
