I tested positive for Chlamydia, after treatment my BF & i where wondering if we would be able to have unprotected sex again? of course ill be on the birth control pill.

Testing and treatment are important first steps, but it’s critical that your boyfriend also get treated for chlamydia, if he hasn’t already. Even if he doesn’t have any symptoms, he needs to get tested and, if positive, treated. That way you won’t infect one another when you have sex again.

Chlamydia is easily treated with a round of antibiotics. Your nurse or doctor will tell you exactly what type of antibiotics you need, and when to get tested again to make sure the antibiotics worked. And your boyfriend needs to get his own treatment — don’t share your antibiotics with him.

It’s always a good idea to use condoms, but it’s especially important to use them until both you and your boyfriend test negative for chlamydia and other STDs. Learn more about chlamydia.
