    Ask him for the basis of his claims and weigh up if you trust him any further..

    When anyone says they don't have anything, there are three possibilities:

    1. They don't have anything,
    2. They do, but they don't know it, and
    3. They do, but they think that if they were honest, they wouldn't get what they want.

    Ideally, it would always be the first one, but in reality the latter two are not uncommon.

    What would happen if you suggested going to a clinic and testing together?

    Are you using condoms? That would greatly reduce any risk to you if he does in fact have something.

    There's nothing wrong with asking someone to get tested, but you have to be willing to get tested yourself.

    Or, stress that you use condoms until you both get tested.

    Well, if he treats you well, like you say, then he most likely won't mind going and getting tested. Why don't you say you'll both go together and be tested. That way you both have piece of mind and neither of you is singled out.
