Maybe and no: Did you have a positive test for chlamydia or otherwise think you have it? If so, you should not be having sex at all until treated or cured. That said, chlamydia doesn't take well to the mouth and throat, and your partner probably wouldn't be infected. But it could happen and your partner should be examined and tested. Only antibiotics will clear chlamydia; there are no other treatments.
