@Dr_Paula I got an still test after my last partner and it was clear. I then started seeing someone after this & I haven’t been with anyone else apart from him. I then got tested again which was positive for Chlamydia. He has been sleeping with other people & 2 if them got tested & their results came back as negative. He is now blaming me on skeeping with someone else and passing the infection on as the other 2 people are clear. Can you have sex with someone and not pass Chlamydia on?
Many thanks for your question. Yes absolutely you can have sex with someone and not pass chlamydia on. I think in most studies when someone is diagnosed with chlamydia about 60-70% of their partners will also have chlamydia.
@Dr_Paula I had previously posted. I had been tested a year ago & was clear. I have only been with 1 person since then but he was sleeping with 2 other people. Him & the other 2 he was sleeping with have came back negative & I’ve tested positive. Can you tell me how this is possible?
It is possible that your partner had the infection but cleared it without treatment. Please remember it is very difficult to work out who gave a sexually transmitted infection to whom because:
- They often cause no symptoms
- If you have sex with someone with a sexually transmitted infection you do not always catch the infection
- You can get the infection and clear it without treatment
- No test is 100% correct
It makes sense to get treated for the chlamydia infection and re-test after this to make sure it has gone.
