Think my friend's BF is lying about cheating...

My friend contracted gonorrhea from her boyfriend. Assuming he was cheating she confronted him about it and he claimed he didn't cheat. He claimed that He's had it for 7 years. I've heard that it can be asymptomatic, but this sounds like a bold-faced lie. But is this a possibility?

Also I suspect him of lying because of his past in cheating and among other things.

It would be highly unusual to have unprotected intercourse with someone who carries this STD for three years and not become infected before this.

Besides it is also unlikely this boyfriend would have had gonorrhea for 7 years and not had this treated.

He may have become infected recently and thus passed it on to his girlfriend.
