The virus can spread by a simple skin to skin contact. Just oral or genital contact with someone’s mouth or genitals can spread the disease.
If someone has Chlamydia bacteria on the hands and touches his or her eyes, then an infection can spread to the eyes also. There is a lot of precaution and care one must take to avoid the spread of STD diseases like Chlamydia. To remain away from STDs it is wise to stick to a single uninfected partner and also to go in for regular health checkups to ensure the safety of both the partners.
Another safe precaution can be to wash your hands and genital areas after sex using a disinfectant soap. Hands should be washed before touching your own face or other body parts. In some cases there may be no symptoms at all. So unless one goes for a test it becomes very difficult to know whether he or she is infected. If left untreated this STD disease can cause a lot of health problems and might even lead to infertility.
Chlamydia can be transmitted even if the penis or tongue does not enter the vagina, mouth, or rectum. Using latex condoms consistently and correctly from the very beginning of sexual contact until there is no longer skin contact reduces the risk of transmission of Chlamydia. Of all the STDs, Chlamydia has become one of the most common diseases as it has a vast communicability period. That is why care has to be taken so that you do not get infected.
