I just tested positive for chlamydia. I have had one sex

Customer Question
partner for seven years and...
I just tested positive for chlamydia. I have had one sex partner for seven years and unprotected sex with that partner for approx five of those seven years.
I know it is "possible" for me to remain asymtomatic for 7 years (i was tested and negative when we started getting serious... But who knows if that test was accurate) but what are the odds that i could be asymptomatic for 7+ years?
Also we are trying to conceive and she regularly goes to the gyno for annuals and check ups (she had an iud and recent tests for conception viability). She has clearly been tested and has mentioned nothing. What are the odds that i have had chlamydia for 7 years and NOT have transmitted it to her ( assume 50+ unprotected sexual occurances per year for 5 years, so 250 instances. Is that even possible?

This is Dr. David

the chances are zero you would have remained asymptomatic with chlamydia for 7 years

much more likely your partner contracted chlamydia and gave it to you if you have not had sex outside of the relationship.

sorry about the bad news.

but that is the much more likely scenario

let me know if you have questions.

Ok. Im told the symptoms in men can be minor and go unnoticed "silent infection" or whatever. Assume under some crazy scenario where pigs fly and i have had this for 7 years and not know... What are the transmission rates? What are the odds that in 5 years i did NOT transmit it to her?Thanks!
OB GYN Doctor: Dr David, Doctor replied 1 year ago

the odds would be zero that you did not transmit it to her if you had chlamydia in your system and you had 50+ episodes of unprotected sex per year for 7 years.

so if you had it, you would have given it to her

if she had it, she would have given it to you.

let me know if you have other questions.

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.
