Recently I visited a gynecologist, and she said I had a cervical infection. Since my husband recently confessed of been unfaithful, my doctor treated it as Chlamydia. I told my husband he needed to be checked, but according to him, his results were negative. I haven't have any sexual relations with anyone but him...How can I have Chlamydia and he doesn't?

Welcome to the forum!
You were recently diagnosed with cervical infection. As reported by you your husband recently confessed of being unfaithful, doctor treated it as Chlamydia. So actually a STD panel was not done. So it is possible that it was not Chlamydia infection. Also whether it is a STD or not cannot be confirmed without the tests,
The other possibility is that your husband did not take the test. Your husband says he has been tested negative for STD. Since you have not had any other partner except your husband, if you take the test and have a STD you have got it from your husband.
Please consult your gynecologist as beyond this it is difficult to comment on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
