Thanks for the query.

Based on the details provided, it's still possible that he got this infection from you.

Vaginal infections may not always cause symptoms, so a person might transmit infection without being aware of it. And hysterectomy doesn't prevent or help in preventing such infections.

Ideally he should get urine analysis and urine culture test done. In fact you can also get a urine analysis done to rule out infection.
If there is evidence of infection then you both might need course of antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your query. Please ask if there are doubts.
