Does a previous chlamydia infection put me at greater risk of catching it again? Or catching any other STDs? I was treated and am completely clean now

In brief: No

A previous chlamydia infection does not make a person more susceptible to future chlamydia infections.
However, it is important to ensure that your partner is tested/treated to ensure that reinfection does not occur. In addition, barrier contraception (condoms) can help to prevent STD transmission.
