If you have oral sex with someone that has chlamydia, do you get it to?

In brief: Yes, it's contagious

Chlamydia germs can also live on the throat, not just in the penis and in the vagina/cervix.
The idea is to avoid oral sex with people carrying infections, until the infections are cured by medications. If a person with a sore throat goes to see the doctor, he should tell the doctor if he has been doing oral sex because the antibiotic for strep throat is different from the one to treat chlamydia.
