If culture was neg.: Yes, if your follow up chlamydial cultures were negative and your partner does not have any STD's.

Off track: While the person giving oral sex to a person who has been successfully treated for chlamydia is unlikely to catch a chlamydia infection, the person receiving the oral sex is at risk for catching genital herpes from an infection with the herpes simplex virus type 1. 50 - 80 % of people harbor the HSV-1, which typically causes cold sores.

Yes: I do however suggest that once treated that you get what we call a test of cure. Most physicians will have your repeat a test for chlamydia 2-6 weeks after being treated to make sure you are clear. Its also a good time to use condoms regularly and for oral sex you can use a dental damn.
