Question: Unprotected anal sex

 mlh2770 - Tue Sep 22, 2009 10:20 am

Can a person in a monogamous relationship get Urethritis or Cervicitis through unprotected anal sex with their partner of eleven years, or do multiple people have to be involved? My partner is claiming not to have been with anyone else yet we both have signs of Chlamydia. We are being treated. Thanks

User avatar Hello,Teenage girls can catch the organisms easy and never know in the early days of casual sex,be it oral,vaginal or anal.Even if there is no full insertion contact of fluids could result in transmission, and in children as in sex abuse.If you are not cetain you can always get more sophisticated tests like Nucelic acid amplification test NAAT.Rarely it can get passed on by sharing sex toys.Hope this information is useful.
