Depends where the ch: Chlamydia was cultured from, if you have it genitally and not from a throat culture then no, but if would be the wise thing to refrain from any sex until you have has a test of cure, and if you had + culture and you had intercourse with him he needs to be treated anyway because sometimes his culture could be a false negative.

Chlamydia: Chlamydia is readily treatable. It will not self-cure, so a specific antibiotic regimen is required. Sex should be avoided until both partners test clear. As there is a small incidence of false negatives, your partner should repeat the test he's already had. Please see https://www.cdc.gov/std/chlamydia/stdfact-chlamydia.htm

Get treated: Chlamydia is treatable with antibiotics. See your doctor, get treated and hold off on any sex. Your partner may wish to get tested, as chlamydia can be silent, especially in a man.
