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.
Chlamydia is cured with antibiotics. When someone is being treated for Chlamydia, it is very important that they and their partners are treated and finish the medication, and abstain from sexual activities with other people for 7 days. This will help ensure that re infection doesn’t occur.
Even if someone has some type of unprotected sexual contact one time, if one of the partners is infected, Chlamydia can still be transmitted.
