I no longer have a cervix either. Someone that I am interested in came in contact with chlamydia, and I am wondering if without a cervix you can still be infected?

Yes, Anon, you can still be infected. If you read the link from the NIH I posted in the answer above your question, you will see that you can be infected vaginally, orally, or anally. So even if you didn't have a vagina at all you could still get chlamydia.

I just got off the phone with my doctor who said I cannot get chlamydia or gonorrhea without a cervix. Even if my partner has it, i cannot get it because I had a hysterectomy and my cervix was removed.

Hi Peaches-

The short answer is yes, absolutely you can become infected with chlamaydia after a hysterectomy. If you have not yet seen a doctor, I suggest you do so as soon as possible. We have a page on chlamydia: https://www.empowher.com/condition/chlamydia and the National Institutes of Health has detailed information as well: http://www.niaid.nih.gov/topics/chlamydia/Pages/default.aspx

Please seek treatment, and good luck.
