Q2A

Got a message telling us......

 

Can chlamydia be passed on through kissing?

This is our reply.......

 

No, chlamydia can't be passed on through kissing, or through sharing cups and cutlery.
It's passed on by coming into contact with the semen or the vaginal fluid of a person who
is infected with chlamydia. The best way to reduce the chance of becoming infected with
chlamydia, and other sexually transmitted infections, is to use condoms. You can get
free supplies of condoms from young people's sexual health clinics and you can find your
nearest one by ringing:

# Worth Talking About, 0800 28 29 30 or searching on
http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Talkingaboutsex/Pages/Ineedhelpnow.aspx.
If you'd like more information about chlamydia you can ask Worth Talking About or look on
the following website which we found very useful for our reply:

# http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Chlamydia-in-Women.htm - the information is equally
helpful for men.
