How do you catch Chlamydia?

Written by Stamp Out Chlamydia . Posted in FAQ

Chlamydia is passed on during vaginal, anal and oral sex.

You cannot catch it from a toilet seat, swimming pools, spas or normal social contact with people because the bacteria that causes it cannot live outside the body. You can reduce the chance of catching and passing on Chlamydia and other STIs by using condoms.
