after treatment for chlamydia can you get infected again from not changing your toothbrush?

I had chlamydia (oral) and I had a toothbrush in my bag from then and i used it ... and I was just wondering if I can get it again by using the same toothbrush?
georgiagail responded:
The bacteria connected with this STD does not live very long outside the body.

In other words, if it was even present on the toothbrush (unlikely by the way) it would be long dead and thus could not reinfect you.
