Can you catch chlamydia orally by someone who has rectal chlamydia?
      #272505 - 06/12/13 11:00 PM

I've just been treated for rectal chlamydia, but I have a partner who we both have never had anal sex with, but he has given me oral sex. I haven't told him just yet because I found out today and I'm waiting until he is back, but I was wondering what are the chances of someone getting it if they only given you oral sex? Is it lower than anal sex?

"People get chlamydia by having sex with someone who has the infection. “Having sex” means anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Chlamydia can still be transmitted even if a man does not ejaculate. People who have had chlamydia and have been treated can get infected again if they have sex with an infected person."

I think that about sums it up. So you both should start treatment at the same time so you don't keep passing it back and forth.

Chances are lower, but you're still putting yourself at risk by having oral sex without a barrier method. The general rule of thumb is anything you can contract via anal or vaginal intercourse, you can ALSO contract from oral sex.
