Trichomoniasis re-infection after many years

Patient : Nearly 38 years ago, my husband gave me trichomoniasis right after we married. He declined to take the meds given to me by my doctor. Recently he infected me again. Is it possible (as he claims) that it has been in his body since he "sowed his wild oats" and just resurfaced? Wouldn't antibiotics he has taken for sinus infections cure it? My doctor is his "coffee buddy" so I can't get a straight answer from him, either. Well great! The site I went to said this was FREE- forget you!
