Detection of Rectal Chlamydia trachomatis in Heterosexual Men Who Report Cunnilingus.

Summary of "Detection of Rectal Chlamydia trachomatis in Heterosexual Men Who Report Cunnilingus."

Rectal infection with Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) is frequent in women who deny receptive anal sex and is thought to arise from autoinoculation of the rectum from vaginal secretions. An alternate hypothesis is that oral sex inoculates and establishes gastrointestinal tract infection. Distinguishing these hypotheses is difficult in women. In men, autoinoculation is unlikely and heterosexual men frequently perform oral sex, but rarely participate in receptive anal exposure behaviors.
