Hi Anon,


Welcome to EmpowHER. People get chlamydia by having sex with someone who has the infection. “Having sex” means anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Chlamydia can still be transmitted even if a man does not ejaculate. People who have had chlamydia and have been treated can get infected again if they have sex with an infected person. You might want to discuss this with your partner and maybe there’s something that he might feel embarrassed to share with you.
