Theoretically: yes: Chlamydia is trransmitted in sexual secretions so: if you had sexual secretions near or in your vagina guess what?- your are officially at risk and.....time to rethink the constant use of condoms. Please consult your GYN if you are having a discharge and ALWAYS consider how much protection you have when sex is with condoms.
