In brief: ?? U get tested too?
Just to be on the safe side, you should also get tested if he is positive.
The only way you can be more sure you don't also have it is to be checked. Sometimes women's infections are not as easily found as men. Most doctors would treat you both at the same time. A standard suggestion is to wait 7 days after treatment before having relations again.
