chlamydia transmission
Jun 30, 1998

How exactly do you get chlymadia? Can you get it through unprotected intercourse even if the guy did not ejaculate in you and there were no visible symptoms?

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Hi. Thank you for your question. Chlamydia causes a discharge that is highly infectious. It is most often transmitted through vaginal intercourse. This infection can be transmitted even if the man does not ejaculate. In addition, this infection can be transmitted even if there are no noticeable symptoms. For more information about Chlamydia, please see the posting What's Chlamydia?.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the Centers for Disease Control at 1.800.232.4636 (Nationwide).
