Chlamydia: Get treated. Tell her asap so she can get treated too.

Specializes in Gynecology
Chlamydia: The guy may be hesitant to call a girl. But if you have intimate relationship, the least one can do is to call her as soon as possible, before any serious harm strikes her. Most time, she appreciates your honesty. If not, whom can you blame? Chlamydia infection is reportable by public health law.

Not only is it important for her to know and be treated if necessary, but if you have one STD, there is a good chance you have others, and then both of you can be appropriately tested.
