    The best protection from chlamydia and other STIs, whatever your sexual preference, is to always practice safe sex. Barrier protection (condoms, dams) should always be used when having sex with a partner whose previous sexual habits or partners are unknown. The withdrawal method (in which the penis is withdrawn from the vagina before ejaculation) is not protective against chlamydia or any other STI. Taking the pill does not protect against STIs.

    For more information Queensland women can call the Health Information on 3839 9988 or 1800 017 676 (toll free outside Brisbane).
