I had sex with this guy who recently found out he had tested positive for chlamydia ….

…….we did have sex without a condom a couple of times prior to me knowing. Is there a chance I have it?

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. People can get Chlamydia through vaginal, anal, or oral sex without a condom or dental dam.

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 1 week. This will help ensure that re infection doesn’t occur.

Since there was unprotected sexual contact, it is possible Chlamydia was transmitted.  The best thing you can do is see a medical professional and get tested. Remember, condoms and dental dams can help reduce the risk of STI transmission.
