If you have not had any sexual partners that are new, this infection must have come from your partner. Even if she tested negative, the test in not 100% sensitive and could have missed it in her. However, your eating could have been falsely positive as well if she denies having sex with anyone else. There is no way I can definitely answer why you tested positive. These are just the possibilities that could lead to your results.
