Chlamydia worry


#1

Hi @Dr_Paula
I had finished my course of antibiotics for chlamydia and had stopped having sex. I had no symptoms prior , and so thought I was better to leave sex for more than the week recommendation (I had sex after around 4 weeks after the course was complete) I am with this new partner now and had sex with him (after 4weeks) and then retested with negative results for chlamydia. Does this mean I am free and I didn’t pass it on to him ? Or should he get tested , he has been tested before and not had it.

Hello @anonymous1234

Thanks for your question. It is always a good idea for both partners to get tested at the start of a relationship, no matter what their STI history is. So it might be a good idea for your partner to get tested as well.

Many thanks

Paula
