A 19-year-old female asked:

If the girl performed oral sex with someone who had chlamydia and used the same toothbrush while on treatment can she still have chlamydia?

Possibly but...: There are so many variables. These are important questions: how soon after was the toothbrush re-used, was the toothbrush washed between uses, how long has "she" been on treatment? So in this type of online forum it would be almost impossible to say with any certainty. If concerned, see your physician.

NO: Chlamydia cannot live on a toothbrush.
