In brief: Condoms/abstinence
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection passed by transmitting body fluids from one person to another. Avoiding intercourse is the only 100% way to protect yourself.
Condoms are very effective in decreasing the risk. Chlamydia can be acquired through vaginal, anal and oral sex.

Other than HPV, it is the most commonly reported STD in the US; 25 and younger should be screened
Dr. George Valdez
it is very often without symptoms, which is why it spreads easily.
