Mycoplasma genitalium

My boyfriend got tested positive for mycoplasma genitalium. We have been together about year and a half (and he has not had sex with anybody else for about 2,5 years and then with a condom). Could it be that he got it even before that, so maybe 3-4 years ago and it didn’t show? And how is it possible that in november I tested negative for the same thing and we have regular sex? I am pretty sure he hasn’t cheated on me.

Also, because he didn’t have sex doesn’t mean that he didn’t contract it orally. MG is often asymptomatic in the throat. You need to take an extended course of azithromycin, if that fails, take a long 10-14 day course of Moxifloxacin.

Doctor prescribed azithromycin 2x500mg first day and next four days 500mg... isn’t that too much? I read that one day treatment includes 2x500mg.
So he could have got it orally also?
Yes, MG is passed orally. So person could have had it in their throat unknowingly, and then passed it to your partner. Same goes for male to female oral but less likely. If symptoms continue, take 14 days minimum of Moxifloxacin. That is the only real hope of killing the infection.
Thank you!:)

MG tests are incredibly unreliable. It’s odd that symptoms would not show for that long but 6-18 months before symptoms is common. Either he had an asymptomatic case for 3-4 years which is unlikely. Or he is not being truthful and had an infidelity after your November MG test. What type of specimen did you send in to get tested?

He sent urine test and I got tested in routine control in my obgyn visit, test from swab test I guess (not english native). Is it possible that it just appears in females and then I gave it to him?
