Well, she's not exactly a baby, she is 16. I have looked for other sites that could answer questions for me, that I couldn't answer for her, but found none, on this particular question, so I am hoping someone here will read this and maybe give me some answers to this question. My sister has just found out that she has chlymidia, and after she had the test taken, but before the test results came in, she had anal sex with a boy (I don't know what to call him), and now she is wondering if she has given him chlymidia also. She does not know who she got chlymidia from in the first place, because she was very, ummmmmm.....how do I say it, sexually active, she has had at least 25 partners, I was in shock when I found that out! But if anyone can answer this question for me, or offer a phone number that she can call and get information about chlymidia, thank you.

Not wanting to tempt fate, but if your sister has had partially unprotected (as it seems) sex with at least 25 different partners, she may have a bigger problem than 'just' one single STD.
I think she should not only tell that anal sex guy about it, but all of her former partners she has had unprotected sex with. Since she doesn't seem to have an idea where she's got it, it may have been anybody, and most likely she's as well infected all of her sexual partners since then, and they in turn might have infected other girls, and so on...
Also, I'd recommend her to be tested for other STDs as well. (How many of these 25 guys did she have unprotected sex with anyway??)
Of course, no unprotected sex with anybody until she's got all the test results (i.e. about 3 months). And she really should talk to her doctor about this. He knows exactly what to do, and he has all the information and help she needs.
When life hands you a lemon, that's 40% of your RDA of vitamin C taken care of.
Be sure to look for "chlamydia" when searching the web.
As to the question:
I'm obviously no expert, but:
It is definitively possible to transmit chlamydia via anal sex and the chance is high enough.
As the disease can easily go unnoticed for a longer period of time and as it leads to sterility and possibly worse in the long run, I think your sister really should tell this boy as well as potential others. Of course this is a very hard thing to do, but it's nothing she could risk, is it? After all, treatment doesn't seem to be too problematic.
Hope you can convince her. Good luck.
'Repent, Harlequin!' said the Ticktockman. 'Get stuffed!' the Harlequin replied, sneering.
I think your sister needs to go get checked for other stds, because if she did have sex with these other guys and they were unprotected then she is highly at risk for alot of other STDs. She also needs to go tell all the other guys who she had sex with because they need to get checked along with all their sexual partners since her. There is also clinics that you can go to if u dont want your parents to know. If you need any other informations please feel free to email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
First, i hope she aint tellin people she got that because that aint nothin 4 someone 2 tell their business about, secondly and lastly chlymidia aint no big disease it can get cured in 7 days, only thing she needs 2 do is go 2 the doctors 2 get a prescription, then at the most i say about 2 weeks, it'll be cured

Following your logic, should you be told by one of your partners if she had AIDS or some other "lesser" STD or is it "her business," even though her business has put a cap on your lifespan, reproductive, and possibly social life? I'm sorry, but that's a pretty immature view. While she shouldn't go out advertising her chlamidia, she should tell those she had sex with so they can get tested and see if they caught it and she should warn future lovers, if she does not treat it. Since she obviously hasn't had treatment, she possibly infected any one of her partners, therefore (since chlamidia has almost no apparant symptoms but can wreck havock in the repoductive organs) she should tell them so they can get screened and recieve treatment appropriately.

That is correct, oddly enough. It still is a big disease, left untreated.

Caused by the Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria and transmitted during vaginal, oral or anal sexual contact with an infected partner, chlamydia is the most reported bacterial infection in the United States and the most common bacterial (and thus curable) sexually transmitted disease by far, ahead of gonorrhea and syphilis.
