I would treat: If a patient told me that his or her partner had been diagnosed with chlamydia I would treat without a test.

It depends. : Physicians have a spectrum of different approaches to treatment based on association. One school of thought, when it comes to STI's, is that a generous approach to treatment of any symptomatic partner will help "stamp out" bad diseases. Many docs stringently require face-to-face prior to any medication. If you are pregnant, as per your profile, you should definitely see your OB with this question!
