    A guy I know got a new tattoo, a few hours after I slept with him. I found out that the tattoo place reused their needles without cleaning them properly and gave both him and his friend chlamydia. I read online that it takes 2-3 days for the chlamydia to become established to the point at which the organisms are growing and can be transmitted to others.Since I slept with him only a few hours after he came in contact with the disease, I believe this means I could not have caught it because it didn't get enough time to become contagious and transmittable to others. What do you think?

    It's going to depend on what you did. You may as well get a test.

    What makes him think it was the tattoo that led to the chlamydia and, if it was unclean kit, is he sure he doesn't have anything else?

    Because his friend had gotten it shortly after the day they got the tattoos and she hasn't had sex with anyone in months and had been clean before that. And so He got tested as well and was positive for chlamydia but nothing else.
