Rectal Chlamydia

I recently received a positive rectal chlamydia result and was given antibiotics.  I am a gay male and all my other tests came back negative including the chlamydia urine test.  I always have protected anal sex and have never had anal sex without a condom, but have had  unprotected oral sex.  The condoms never slipped and there was never any breakage. How did a receive a test positive for rectal chlamydia and a negative urine Chlamydia test?

Try not to think about it too much. Chlamydia is quite infectious hence semen getting close to the area will have a reasonable chance of infecting you. Broken condom? Rubbing semen inside you accidently? Unprotected analingus? Who knows.

Take you treatment and test regularly if having multiple partners.
