    I know you can get anal Chlamydia from anal sex. However, can you get the other forms of chlamydia from anal sex - such as one that is a urniary tract infection or is that only cause by sexual intercourse with a woman or from performing oral sex?

    This is not a urology question.

    You can spread chlamydia anywhere you have contact. It does not matter where you "put it." It is the SAME infection no matter where you find it, not a different "kind" of chlamydia when it's in your eye or your mouth or somewhere else. It is a very common infection, partly because you don't have to have symptoms to have the disease.

    Chlamydia is not a UTI. It is not gender specific.

    Stop having unprotected sex. Get tested regularly.
