Sometimes, : Sometimes, after ruling out the usual suspects, we are left with an unsolved mystery. If you have been treated with a negative test of cure; and your contacts have been checked this is probably the best that can be hoped for.

Gonorrhea: Posiitve gonorrhea tests are very accurate, so for sure you were infected. But the tests miss some cases; must asssume your partner has it, even with negative tests. In 99% of situaitons like yours, one partner or the other has had other partners recently. (Sorry that's not what you hoped to hear.) He needs treatment despite negative test results, and both need tests for HIV, syphilis, chlamydia.
