    Hello, i am a 42 yr old woman, married and having a slight dispute with my spouse on how you can get clamydia. He seems to think you can get this std from wearing clothing or a toilet seat. From my understanding, you actually have to have some type of contact such as sex without a condom, or oral sex. If someone with the disease had put your pants on, and you then wore them, is there a possibility of receiving the std? If you used a toilet seat after someone with the std, could you contact it? This has been an ongoing question do to a family member contacting this std, please if you could help solve this question if there is any other way besides sex to get this, i would , as well as my husband would be greatful, plus our family member may need to look into what their spouse is really up to while they are at work. e-mail : . or please write me back here on webmd, perhaps there are others with this question.

    Greatly appreciated

    I have been through the same situation with my ex-husband. He tried to tell me the same thing. The doctor told me that chlamydia is an std. You cant get it on the toilet. He told me that because he was trying to deny his infidelity.
