Is it possible to get chlamydia from something other than sexual contact or anything having to do with another person?

No, if you have chlamydia you need to look at whoever you have been with. Maybe you should invest in some condoms. Also since you seem uninformed about STD's I want to recommend that you see a doctor. STD's can kill you and are spread easily. Go to your local library and check out a book on it.

If the boy is infected, it is possible for a boy to get chlamydia from another boy.

User Avatar

Yes, that is possible. Because of the inflammation that results from chlamydia, it's easier for other pathogens that cause STDs to infect you.

It is not possible for anything to go to another dimension.

You can't get chlamydia from not bathing. It's an infection you get from another person.

Chlamydia does not lie dormant, although 80-90% of women and half of men with chlamydia have no symptoms. A chlamydia test would come out positive if you have chlamydia, even if you don't have symptoms. It's possible you may not have chlamydia but another STD. Go to your local family planning center, STD clinic or GUM clinic to get tested if you're having symptoms.

Chlamydia is an infection, and you get it from having sexual contact with someone who is infected. You can't get chlamydia from another infection.

User Avatar

Merely not washing enough does NOT cause Chlamydia. Chlamydia comes from bacteria which is passed on to you from another human.

Pathogen is another name for infectious agent. For instance, the pathogen that causes chlamydia is Chlamydia trachomatis.

It's possible to get chlamydia through genital-genital contact without intercourse. The problem with your question is the word "virgin." That word doesn't describe risk factors for STDs. That is, "virgin" doesn't say anything about whether you've exchanged potentially infectious fluids or had skin to skin contact with another person.It's possible to get STDs including chlamydia, HPV, HSV, gonorrhea, syphilis, and trichomonas by having genital-genital contact. Whatever your partners history, both partners should get tested prior to exchanging fluids.You can't get chlamydia if your partner and you were virgins.

No it is not; it is another name for gonorrhea.

If you get reinfected with chlamydia after treatment, you'll have to take another round of antibiotics.

No chlamydia doesn't form on its own. You must be infected with the bacteria to catch it. A chlamydia bacterium comes from its parent chlamydia. The disease is caused when that germ is spread from one person to another.

Cough is not a sign of chlamydia trachomatis (the STD) in adults. In newborns affected by chlamydia in the lungs, a hacking cough that doesn't bring up phlegm can be a sign of disease. There is another species of chlamydia, chlamydia pneumoniae, that causes cough.

User Avatar

Yes; gonorrhea infection is common with chlamydia infection.

User Avatar

There are a few possible explanations. The most likely is that you contracted chlamydia within those three months. Another possibility is that you got the first test so soon after infection that it could not yet be detected. A false negative or false positive test is another possible explanation.

User Avatar

No, you can't. There is no other infection that turns into chlamydia. You get chlamydia from oral, anal, or vaginal sex; genital-genital contact; sharing sex toys; and birth to an infected mother.

Chlamydia doesn't typically cause sores. If you have sores, see your health care provider for additional diagnosis and treatment, as you may have another infection as well as chlamydia.

User Avatar

If you don't have sexual contact with a person who has another infection, you won't get another infection. Chlamydia doesn't turn into HIV or any other infection.

User Avatar

You can't get chlamydia from hands. Chlamydia is spread by oral, anal, or vaginal sex; from sharing sex toys; and from birth to a woman with chlamydia. It would be almost impossible to pass chlamydia via the hands unless you got the bacteria in your (or another person's) eye almost immediately after you touched the infected area.

User Avatar

Yes, it is very possible. Many people can carry a bacteria or virus, then transfer it to another person (chlamydia and meningitis are good examples), and it is often that the second person gets the disease, without the first person ever being aware of their dangerous status.

Not legally possible. Technologically you could download or copy anything

It is possible to sue for just about anything, but you'd have little chance of collecting in this case.

The requirements for partner tracing for chlamydia vary from one county to another. You can contact your county health department to inquire about their practices.

One myth about chlamydia is that you would know if you had it. Most diagnosed patients had no symptoms. Another myth is that you have to sleep around to get it. One partner is plenty.
