Chlamydia from oral sex?


Dear @Dr_Paula

I had protected vaginal sex, and protected (giving) and unprotected (recieving) oral sex with a cis man with Chlamydia. How likely am I to be infected? He only told me after we had sex and I’m worried. Help!


Hello @RJM
Many thanks for your question.

It is difficult to put an exact risk on this. You can pass chlamydia through oral sex but the risk is lower than with vaginal sex.

I am sure that the thing to do is not to worry, but to test 2 weeks after the sex you are worried about and if positive it is easy to treat.

Many thanks



Thank you. I am worried sick and your response really helped.



Really glad that was helpful.
