Was treated for trichomoniasis. Having the same symptoms. Reoccurring?

I was treated for trichomoniasis 6 months ago (without having had any symptoms) and so was my partner at the time (allegedly). 2 months ago I got back with that partner, and the very next day started experiencing symptoms described online as being trich. My question is, is it more likely that I m experiencing symptoms now and not before because the treatment was unsucceful (in which case why would it have taken so long for symptoms to show up?), or that my partner unsuccessfully/did not get treated originally and re-infected me (in which case why would my symptoms appear within a day and not the usual 5-14?); or is it common for both parties to have unsuccessful treatments (I.e. are their different strains , like a virus, that could be more resilient)?

Welcome to HCM.
The symptoms you suffer can be caused by any vaginal irritation including Trichomonas. Often vaginal infections are of a mixed Origen (bacteria, fungus and virus). As you hint it is also important that both sexual partners be treated at the same time. Remember that abrasion due to intercourse can cause similar symptoms without having to be an infection. It is best to have a smear taken to have the exact causation determined and treated. In the mean time I suggest the use of a condom.
I trust this is helpfull.
