Can a chlamydia test be wrong??

So since 2015 I had been having pain during sexual intercourse. I have only been with my husband for the last 3 years. The symptoms started after I had my son in 2014. At first they were mild I had a check up and everything came back normal. My dr told me I just needed lubricant. I felt it was something more than that. So all through 2015 my symptoms got worse sex is very painful, I get itchy after, and urinating burns. I had another well women's check up in June 2016 at a different clinic and they said I tested positive for chlamydia. Myself or my husband have not been with anyone else. So I'm concerned for myself and it's also caused emotional stress on our marriage. I don't know what else to do the nurse at the clinic was really cold I asked if this could be wrong because I know my husband and he wouldn't do anything like that and the nurse responded by telling me "there's no other way you can contract this so someone had to have a different sexual partner."

Yes, I would say it can be wrong. The same thing happened to me. I got re-tested and the second test was negative. I also had health care professionals telling me I am naive to think that my boyfriend didn't cheat on me.  I am pretty sure the first test was wrong and the negative test is the accurate one.
