However, the only sexual activity I engaged in was oral sex (mostly on the receiving end).
For the chlamydia test, they swabed my thoat, made me urinate in a cup and take a swab of my rectum. Although, it's possible that one of the guys I dated may have rubbed his gentital near my rectum (without a condom). However, that's the only contact that I could think. They told me to place the swab an inch into my rectum, but I couldn't do this. Now the only way this could have happened is if the guy who touched your anus with his penis, could have had precum that came in contact with the anus and he transmitted the infection to you. The most risky thing I've engaged in is oral sex without a condom, but no semen has ever been in my mouth and swallowed.
If the infection is left untreated, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
Women are more likely than men to suffer symptoms such as bumps, itching, or burning urination due to a sexually transmitted disease/infection, especially in the genital region.
Without those first noticeable signs of an STD, infections often go unnoticed and untreated, which can cause long-lasting or even irreversible effects if left untreated.
Most STDs don’t produce symptoms or, if they do, result in vague or generic flu-like symptoms that could be the result of many different conditions.
It can be difficult to determine the cause of symptoms due to an STD without getting tested.
