Can chlamydia be transferred thru anal sex we have taken

Patient: Can chlamydia be transferred thru anal sex we have taken the medication but they said wait two weeks before having sex

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.To get complete relief from the infection both partners sho uld be treated simultaneously, you have to complete the course of antibiotics and intercourse should be avoided during the treatment period.As your doctor’s recommended better to avoid intercourse for 2 weeks to prevent cross infections.Using barrier method of contraception is an alternative but less effective method of preventing infection.Take care.
