I just got tested for chlamydia and my GYN said I have it. My question is -- my current boyfriend, who is the the only man I've ever been with, said he got tested and did NOT have chlamydia. If he doesn't have it, how could I have gotten it? The only thing I can come up with is a girl who I know who borrowed my swimsuit and then I wore it after, forgetting to wash it. I also share a bathtub with my sister. Could I have gotten chlamydia either of those ways? It seems unlikely from what I've read, but I just dont understand how I got this.
Nay on the bathtub and the swimsuit - you need to understand that chalmydia is THE most common STD. Talk to your boyfriend again - if he's sincere - he should show you his negative test. Get treated since this can cause harm to your sexual organs. I know this is a difficult thing to deal with - both in terms of your own health and in terms of talking to your boyfriend - so I hope all goes well for you.

I am searching for the same reason. I got tested and was positive with Chlamydia and my husband got tested as well and came out negative. I have been married for 10 years and I went with him and actually saw his negative results at the Dr's office. He accused ME for cheating. I swear on my life I did no such thing. How else in the world can you get this STD?? Seriously we were almost going to get a divorce over something that I swore on my life I didn't do. I think a lot of research still needs to be done regarding this STD about how else you can get it, because it can really break up and harm innocent relationships.
I agree 100% I really don't think a whole lot of research has gone into this. I too was tested positive for chlamydia and my husband negative. We were both virgins when we met and neither of us have slept with anyone else. It's very possible that we could've had a false positive but if that's the case then the labs need a totally new method of testing because I am seeing this problem WAY too often!!
I've heard of this all to often...my friend had chlymidia and she suspected her boyfriend to have it but when he got tested it came back negative, so she wondered where she got it. But when she found out she had it, he also took the pills so that he wouldn't get it. He could have had the symptoms but they weren't detected. So after he took the pills she couldn't find out if it was him or not because he was cured like her. If he loves you he wont tell you, he could have been sleeping around but he'll take it to the grave because he cares so much. But through bathing no, a swimsuit maybe, but question him till it hurts an realy find out, get to the bottom of things.
