Ways To Get Chlamydia Besides Sex?

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.
