My partner at one point was with both me & his ex. I've been diagnosed with HPV but just recently his ex was diagnosed with chlamydia. Is it possible?

I would like to know if Chlamydia can come from HPV or If it is unrelated and transmitted sexually.
Went to the dr was told I had hpv an chlamydia but my sex partner was tested an didn't have any of it I was only active with him could my dr be wrong?
Doubt it: If you had the tests done, and the doc said they were positive, I would not assume they were wrong in your case. HPV can eventually lead to cancer and chlamydia, if untreated could make you sterile.Both can be symptom free in females for months or more. If the doc treated you without testing,you could be right, but I expect you got it from someone at some time. ...Read more

Was told by a dr I had low risk hpv gonorrhea and chlamydia but my sex partner doesn't have it , could she have been wrong ? I don't have symptoms
Could be true: The sad thing about all the STD's you mention is that a woman may have them for an extended period without symptoms. The gonorrhea and chlamydia could be present long enough to damage your tubes and reduce your fertility and you still never know. You could have carried all for quite a while. Condoms would decrease risk for your present partner. Get treated or accept the risk. ...Read more
