I haven’t had sex since September with my ex and I just found out I have chlamydia…

….. I’ve been receiving oral sex from my current boyfriend (I’m female), is there a chance that he is infected?

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.

If you were receiving or preforming oral sex while you had Chlamydia it is possible that it was transmitted.

The only way to know for sure if Chlamydia was transmitted is to get tested. It would be a good idea for you and for any partners you have to get tested.  If you want to make an appointment or have more questions you can give Teen Clinic a call at 303-442-5160
