Got chlamydia...but parter tested negative
twotwentyseven posted:
I am a 23 year old male and recently had sudden symptoms for chlamydia....about five days after having oral sex with a male partner. So of course, got treated immediately at a clinic, and ended up testing positive for chlamydia. However, my partner did not have any symptoms, and ended up testing negative.

I haven't had any contact with anyone for over six months and have never had unprotected sex. So its almost a sure thing is came from him. So i'm thinking he might have chlamydia in his throat. Im thinking that the most likely because it was oral sex anyway. Does this not show on the tests or something? Or do you have to test for it specifically? Really confused how he can give it to me and test negative.

Did they take his sample from his oral cavity?

Keep in mind that Chlamydia is often known as "the silent STD" for its lack of symptoms. This means you could have had it for over six months and not known this.

don't think that's something they typically do and he didn't think it mattered. But since he had exposure, he was treated anyway. How likely is it that someone can get chlamydia in the throat? Is it treated the same way regardless or where it is?

If someone engages in oral sex frequently, it's not unusual to have this STD in the oral cavity. Treatment would be the same no matter where the infection is located.
