CHLAMYDIA (question never asked/answered)
Jul 22, 2012

Are there any other ways the bacteria of Chlamydia can infect an uninfected female with an uninfected (male) partner? (monogamous relationship)..For example, penis touching the anal area but no anal sex and then going inside the vagina, fingers entering the vagina, or any type of bacteria on the penis?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

If I understand you correctly, the answer is no. Chlamydia comes from a very specific organism that doesn't live naturally in/around the body. It has to come from another person who is infected. If both partners are definitely, without a doubt, uninfected (from never having risk or getting tested/treated) then neither is going to infect their partner with Chlamydia.

Hope this helps!

Erik
