Sexual: Chlamydia is only transmitted sexually. If you tested positive either one of the 3 tests ( your 2 and your husbands) was wrong or there has been another sexual partner in the last few months. I suspect the later since the tests are very reliable and there must be some reason for the repeated testing. I'm sorry to have to give you such a disturbing answer.
