I am Dr.Amita and I would be glad to assist you today.
Chlamydia is a STD of genital tract and if tests have been negative you should not worry about getting chlamydial infection
Chlamydia are transmitted from the penis to vagina and vice versa and having anal intercourse does not cause transmission of chlamydia to vagina
Nor would having unprotected anal intercourse cause such transmission
As I said I am probably overthinking all of this but my main concern was, if there was anything untoward in the anus can it spread to the vagina (as I said I have not had anal sex since that evening)

I haven't chatted on line like this before, do I now finish and rate the service
Chlamydia is not known to be found in anal area.Several other types of bacteria reside in the anal area but similarly many other types of bacteria also found in vagina as well but these are residents of the area and are known as commensals.These are not harmful.
You may rate if you are finished asking.If you want to clarify anything relaated you may continue chatting
I think after taking 2 tests 6 months apart and both to have come back negative I need to stop thinking about this. I just needed to know if it could be transmitted from anus to vagina without having anal sex.
No it does not get transmitted that way.You can lay the matter to rest.
Thank you Dr. Amita you have been fantastic.
Thanks and best wishes from my side
