Does chylmidia live and passed on through using a bar of soap directly


Hello I’m abit worried I washed my sex toy which I used when I had chylmidia and I used a bar of soap directly on the sex toy when I was cleaning it so it touched and rubbed against the soap I’m now worried if it lived on the soap and my family members have used the soap to wash them selves and I have passed on the infection this way? Is this possible please?


Hello Louise97

Many thanks for your question.

No, you can’t pass on chlamydia through soap used to wash a sex toy.

It really needs fairly direct human to human contact. If a sex toy is used by one person and then immediately by another then it may be possible to transmit the infection but not indirectly through another object.

Hope this puts your mind at rest.

Many thanks
