8 Symptoms of Chlamydia in Men & Answer to Common Questions About Chlamydia

Do I have to tell my sexual partner?

One of the main steps of treating sexually transmitted and other communicable diseases is managing contacts. Contacts are seemingly healthy individuals who came in contact with infected ones during the period where they were infective. This step stops the spread of infections and protects society as a whole. In the case of chlamydia, you should inform any sexual partner within the last 6 months before the development of symptoms. Seeking testing and treatment early can make a big difference and complications are less likely the earlier treatment is started.
