Why would you want : To do that if she has chlamydia, because if she just has chlamydia in the cervix intercourse could cause it to go into her uterus if it is not already there, and if you use a condom and there is a microscopic tear then you can get it and she had to get it from someone so if you are her only boyfriend then she would have to have gotten it from you, and i assume you and her are being treated. ...Read more
