STD transmission: Such indirect contact doesn't transmit chlamydia or any other STD. Same for contact with toilet seats, used towels, etc. They call them sexually transmitted for a reason: if no intercourse, no risk and no worries.

What is the shortest time of having chlamydia can it take before damaging a woman's fallopeon tube?

About 2 weeks: Serious fallopian tube damage could occur as soon as 2 weeks, but usually it takes several weeks or even a few months. If no abdominal or pelvic pain, tubal damange is less likely, but still can occur. This is the second question you've asked about this. If you haven't seen a doctor for diagnosis and treatment, do it ASAP. Good luck!

Unknown: The chlamydia germ has a well known ability to scar the sensitive lining of the Fallopian tubes.It can also attack some other tissues.It might go there within days or not go there at all. Since the timing of exposure is not always known and the infection can remain symptom free for months or more, its hard to answer with confidence.. The longer it goes untreated,the more worrisome.
