How Do You Get Chlamydia Without Being Sexually Active?

Chlamydia is the leading transmittable STD in the UK. One of the reasons for this is that you don’t have to be sexually active to catch the disease. In the article, we’ll discuss how you contract chlamydia, where you can get it, and the symptoms. But most importantly, how you get chlamydia without being sexually active… 

You can get chlamydia by sharing sex toys and mutual masturbation. If you’re pregnant and have chlamydia, you can pass it on to your newborn. You, however, cannot catch chlamydia through casual contact such as kissing, hugging, sharing glasses or from the toilet. 

Read on to find out more about chlamydia, how it is transmitted and the signs and symptoms to look out for. 

Get Tested For Chlamydia With Your Sexual Health 

You can be a carrier of chlamydia and not know you have it, which is why it’s essential to get tested. If you’re looking for a discreet test at a clinic near you, book a test with Your Sexual Health. Visit our clinics page to get started, or order a postal test straight to your door. 

In the unfortunate event that your results come back positive, these can be discussed and actioned by your own GP. We can also recommend an independent private GP service if you prefer who can discuss your circumstances and manage further as required. This service will be free of charge to you.
