Rectal Chlamydia
An_253890 posted:

A couple of weeks ago I was diagnosed with Chlamydia. My question is, in order to get rectal chlamydia do you have to actually have anal sex or can it be caused also by the penis touching the outside of the rectum?

Since Chlamydia requires only contact with mucous membranes (it is an easily transmitted STD), actual anal sex is not required.
