My question is.....How likely is it that I might have caught chlamydia through giving oral sex?
I gave unprotected oral sex to someone and the next day they showed signs of an std. two days later they were diagnosed with chlamydia. We did have intercourse also but used protection. I don't feel a sore throat or any side effects and am wondering if I need to go get tested for chlamydia or should I wait for symptoms? I am pretty sure that I don't have genital chlamydia because I don't have any symptoms of that either but am worried about chlamydia of the throat.
they tell to use condom as savety and many have not thought of oral is inclunding. don't use oral sex againt you might give it back to others - and i think this is a part of the epedemy, a big industry for doctors and pharma. no one is telling the true!

I know there is a door open to tragedy for....
