No doubt we will be taking any and all precautions. She gets into her doctor on the 5th and we've already discussed nothing will happen until we both are treated and retested.

If I'm to understand this correctly, chlamydia has a hard time transmitting without actual contact with the bacteria? Enzymes in the saliva I know are strong and typically can kill about any bacteria in the mouth. I just don't want to lose all passion in our relationship for the next month while going through this process.
She tried to at least get into her doctor to get treated and her doctor refused to do it without testing. I found this to be odd since I tested positive and am currently on treatment. She brought it up to her doctor who still refused at that point. Is there advice I should perhaps forward to her or am I stretching in asking that question?
I can understand why a physician may not want to treat her without her being tested, however, most physicians I know would treat a sexual partner regardless of testing results.
I suspect it has more to do with his desire for the office visit ($) and the vague risk of liability (What if she had a reaction to the medicine, and he didn't have "proof" that she had the infection).
Makes sense to me. I very much appreciate theanswer. You were more helpful than you needed to be and I very much appreciate it. I think we'll stick to the initial plan "just" to be safe. It's a short time when looking at the long run of things.
