  • Chlamydia questions

    Hi doctor, I have a few questions regarding chlamydia.

    1. Is it possible for chlamydia to stay dormant for years before showing symptoms?

    2. Can an asymptomatic carrier pass on the disease?

    3. Will kissing someone with throat chlamydia cause me to get the disease?

    Thanks in advance!

      Dear KaecrL,

      1. It is a possibility. But most people who carry Chlamydia asymptomatically usually remain asymptomatic, until they develop further complications e.g. pelvic inflammatory disease.
      2. Yes, an asymptomatic carrier can pass on the disease.
      3. Yes, oral contact can spread Chlamydia.

      Thank you
