Yes-

Both the chlamydia bacteria and HIV can be co- transmitted, or only one, or neither.

In general the rate of transmission of chlamydia from a woman to a man is about 32% (and from a man to a woman about 40%) from a single unprotected sexual exposure.

The rate of HIV transmission is much less- in general 5 to 10 per 10 000 with penile/ vaginal intercourse.

I hope that helps.

Always ask if you need clarification/more information.

if chlamydia is know to be transferred, does this higher the chance of the HIV to be transferred or is there no significance?
HIV and AIDS Expert: TheBugDoctor, Doctor (MD) replied 6 years ago

If chlamydia is transferred, there may be a higher rate of HIV transmission- HIV viral levels tend to be higher in the genital secretions with co-infections.

But again it is not a guarantee- HIV may or may not be transmitted as well. There is no guarantee either way.

Always ask if you need clarification/more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
