Can you get chlamydia by saliva? As in kissing someone mouth to mouth, sharing food, sharing the same straw, etc.?

Can you get chlamydia by saliva? As in kissing someone mouth to mouth, sharing food, sharing the same straw, etc.?

Here are some. ..: Chlamydia trachomatis is transmitted by vaginal, oral, or anal sexual activities, through which the bacteria gain their foothold through microscopically injured mucosa due to the breakdown of natural barrier by sexual acts. The acts you mentioned wouldn't suffice to break such barrier, except possible existing sore. But remember: The exposed woudn't necessarily contract infection... ...Read more

Can I get chlamydia pinkeye again from using old / expired eye drops?

Can I get chlamydia pinkeye again from using old / expired eye drops?

Don't use old drops: You can contaminate a bottle of eye drops by touching the eye, but the drops inside have preservative to protect them, and the bacteria on the outside probably die by drying out. Multi-dose bottles have preservatives; single use vials do not. In a fridge, the longest you should probably keep the drops is 30 days, once opened. Link: http://drkisling.

I used a condom when having sex but about an inch of the pinus wasn't cover by the condom can I still get chlamydia by touch the skin that wasn't coverd?

I used a condom when having sex but about an inch of the pinus wasn't cover by the condom can I still get chlamydia by touch the skin that wasn't coverd?

No significant risk: If the head of the penis and the urethal opening are covered, there is no significant risk for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or HIV. A condom can never cover all of the penis, which is why there is still some risk for the STDs transmitted by skin to skin contact, like herpes, HPV, and syphilis. The risk of these is low, but not zero. Even with consistent condom use, get STD tested at least once a year. ...Read more

Can I get chlamydia from toilet paper that came into contact with chlamydia in the eye?

No risk, no worries: Chlamydia of the eye is extremely rare. But even if the toilet paper had come into such contact, there would be little or no risk of you catching it. Genital chlamydia is an STD, and they call such infections sexually transmitted for good reason: nobody ever gets them except by sex with an infected partner. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

I have chlamydia, guy I'm seeing doesn't. If I give him oral sex, can he get it from my mouth? (we won't have sex, no oral for me. Just me to him)

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. ...Read more

I took 2 pills by mouth for one day to get rid of my chlamydia. Me and my boyfriend had sex on day 6. It's been 10 days now and I bled after sex. Why?

I took 2 pills by mouth for one day to get rid of my chlamydia. Me and my boyfriend had sex on day 6. It's been 10 days now and I bled after sex. Why?

Infection: Having gotten chlamydia should be a big red flag that you should be using condoms. The bleeding you experienced most likely is the result of injury to your cervix, that was already friable from the chlamydial infection, healing at the time of intercourse. You are the only one that will protect you. Be smart and use condoms with each act of intercourse. ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend got tested for herpes (i & ii) and it was negative. He recently got a pimple on his lip, it looks like his acne on face I recently had chlamydia but got it treated. His face is really sensitive. Should I get retested?

Me and my boyfriend got tested for herpes (i & ii) and it was negative. He recently got a pimple on his lip, it looks like his acne on face I recently had chlamydia but got it treated. His face is really sensitive. Should I get retested?

Low risk, no worries: A single pimple probably is just that. Herpes usually causes a cluster of a few blister-like lesions that then become pimple-like or scab over. The blood tests are quite reliable, but miss up to 30% of HSV1 infections, the cause of oral herpes. If your bf continues to have similar pimples in more or less the same spot, he should get it checked out. But for now there's no need for you to be tested. ...Read more

If someone have chlamydia of the mouth can it spread by kissing?

Very rare: Chlamydia transfer involves extensive exposure of mucosa to infected fluid; it would be hard to imagine kissing fervently enough to lead to transmission, but due to proximity, it is always possible. The vast majority of the time, transmission is by sexual contact. ...Read more

Could Chlamydia be undetected in my girlfriend's mouth for almost 5 years?

Extremely unlikely: First, chlamydia infrequently infects the mouth or throat. Second, chlamydia is rarely if ever carried as long as 5 years. Almost all genital chlamydial infections clear up within a year, even without treatment. Have you had a lab test to diagnose chlamydia? Or only symptoms?
