Vaginal bleeding after sex. Can CHLAMYDIA cause it?

Resolved Question:

Hi. I am in a year long relationship. Regrettably I was unfaithful in the past unprotected on two occasions about three months ago. For a couple months now my gf has Had some blood right after we have sex. Everything I read online says it could be chlamydia. She is going to her doctor tomorrow. I got two chlamydia tests last week and both were negative. I have read online some knowledgable STD doctors say that chlamydia will clear on its on in men in a few weeks or months and can leave partial immunity. Is this true? If so, I'm worried this might be the case, that I had chlamydia with no symptoms, gave it to my GF, cleared the infection on my own, am testing negative and now she's suffering from it. my question though is wouldn't I have inevitably been reinfected from having sex with my gf and then test positive? How confident can I be that my negative results results mean there is no chalmydia between me and my gf?

Hello Matt,
Thank you for your medical query at
I understand your concern.
Yes, there is a possibility of acquiring Chlamydia from unprotected intercourse. Your girlfriend has been bleeding after intercourse. Now, if you indeed passed on the infection to her, this won't be her only symptom. Invariably she will show other symptoms of infection such as burning urination, constant urge to pee, and peeing frequently along with a white discharge from the urethra. Bleeding from the vagina after intercourse is never the only symptom that a woman with Chlamydia will show, so I don't think your girlfriend has chlamydia. She needs to be physically examined by a gynecologist who can guide her further.
