Can you still be infected with Chlamydia (or other STDs for that matter) if you no longer have a cervix?

I had a total hysterectomy in February. I had my uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix removed. The guy I have been seeing has possibly come in contact with chlamydia in the past, though he is not sure and does not have any symptoms. He is in the process of being tested (I know this is a must) and will undergo treatment if needed, but it will be at least 2 months before he knows for sure and is done with treatment (if necessary). Due to heath concerns, I am not able to use condoms. Is it still possible for me to contract chlamydia if I do not have a cervix or a uterus and I do not have anal or oral during the testing and treatment period? Thanks in advance for your answer!
