can get chlamydia from receiving oral sex?
| Response from Mr. Cordova
Yes. Chlamydia can be passed orally. If the person who was performing oral sex on you had an infection in their throat, they could pass it on to you. This would be more likely if the insertive partner was a male, as the penis would be near the back of the throat, which is where the bacteria is found when there is an infection present.
