what caused my chlamydia?
Jan 10, 2013
Hello my wife and I seperated for a few weeks and while on the seperation she had vaganial sex with another man. She swears she her wore a condom but she still got chlamydia and being back together I have been infected as well. How is this possible with protection? Could it be from. hand contact from penis to vagina?
Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there While I can't say for sure what happened between your wife and her other male partner, data shows that people get chlamydia by having sex with someone who has the infection. "Having sex" means anal, vaginal, or oral sex (which would not include hand touching). Latex male condoms, when used consistently and correctly, can reduce the risk of getting or giving chlamydia. Hope that helps. take care, LHW
