Probably not, but...: This is an insightful question. Once in a while genital or rectal chlamydia is found in women with no recent exposure. One theory is that past chlamydial infection may sometimes persist in the intestinal tract despite treatment. But if this happens, it is uncommon. If your were treated as recommended with doxycycline or azithromycin and negative test later, you can be confident you were cured.
