What exactly is your question?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Hi there. It’s about sexual health. Recently I had an encounter with someone who tested positive for chlamydia. I didn’t actually have sex with them. However I did touch my penis against their vagina area. I didn’t insert. What’s the likelihood of me contracting this? I’m really scared.

Thank you for taking the time to help

Thanks for the details

It is unlikely to contract Chlamydia like this

You will be fine

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Really? Thank you so much that’s taken a bit of stress from me I haven’t really been able to sleep. I thought it might be the case I was fine but I have ordered a test incase. It’s just because I convinced myself from reading things online that I had it. It happened about 2 months ago and I haven’t had any symptoms. However because I touched her vagina with my penis (no penetration) I thought I may have it.

Thank you doctor

Don,t worry your test will be negative

Okay sir I will leave a 5 star review as you have really helped me. One last thing though. So do you actually have to have sex to get chlamydia? Sorry for being silly thinking I could get it from just touching genitalia haha.

Yes you have to do sex for that to catch
