Yes, you can get chlamydia in your vagina/penis. You can get chlamydia in your anus. You can get chlamydia in your eyes. You can get information on the clinical presentation of any of these infections. I have seen plenty of cases where there is one or more of these presentations. I have never seen oropharyngial (mouth and throat) clinical presentation of chlamydial infection.
I searched the literature and try as I may, I could not find a case describing the clinical presentation of chlamydial disease of the mouth and/or throat.
Yes, chlamidia has been found in the throats of individuals. In those cases, no pathological activity, that is, no disease process, has been described for the throat or mouth of those individuals.
For all practical purposes, chlamidia of the mouth or throat does not exist as a disease process.
There is pneumonia rhat can be the result of a chlamydial infection, but that is caused by a different species of chlamydia than the one that causes STDs.
