You can get: Chlamydia infection through mucosal surface in your mouth, which can cause pharyngitis or sinusitis or esophagitis. Please monitor your symptoms. This would not be considered a vaginal disease if you did not have intercourse, but still could be a STI if infection occurs following the oral sex act. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Oral chlamydia has not been shown to cause symptoms. CDC recommends against testing for pharyngeal chlamydia. But still not a bad idea to be treated. Animal research suggests that GI colonization may explain some later genital (re)infections in people at low risk for new STD exposure. Doxycycline preferred; azithro has questionable efficacy for GI chlamydia (also in animals, unknown for humans).
