Chlamydia and gonorrhea are sexually transmissible infections – also called STIs – and they are only passed between people through sexual contact. That means that Chlamydia and gonnorhea may be transmitted through oral sex, vaginal sex or anal sex, but they are not transmitted by sharing drinks, by kissing or by using a public bathroom.
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmissible infections (STI) – particularly so among women and men under the age of 25. This is true in the US and the UK as well as many other countries. As such, public health groups are constantly trying new ways to educate people about their risk and encourage them to get tested.
