Let’s start out by talking about what Chlamydia is and how it can be spread or transmitted.
Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted bacterial infection of the vagina, penis, anus, or throat. Chlamydia is spread through vaginal fluids and semen. Someone can get Chlamydia through unprotected oral sex, vaginal sex, anal sex, and genital to genital contact.
While condoms can highly help reduce the risk of STIs, they are not 100% effective, so there is still a small chance that the infection could be transmitted.
Also, it is important to know that if there was contact with another person previously, or if other sexual contact happened where sexual fluids may have been exhanged, this could also be how the infection was transmitted.
It is recommended that any partners get tested, and that you abstain from sexual contact for 7 days after treatment to make sure reinfection does not occur.
