How You Can Get Chlamydia
I have been with the same person for 7 years now. Never cheated on him. My doctor called me and said that I have chlamydia. Is there any other way to get chlamydia beside of having sex? Could you get it by not showering every day or your partner not cleaning himself well enough?
Chlamydia can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Chlamydia can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during vaginal childbirth.
I hope this helps clarify it.
