how does clamydia originate i know that there has to be another way to get clamydia without having sex because the first person in the world to get it had to get it somewhere and today you have to still be able to get it that way so how can you get it without having sex.

Can you get clamydia from yeast infections? also can you get clamydia if you have cervical cancer can you body give it to yourself

All diseases mutate and create new diseases and such just like there was no bears a million years ago where did they come from? They evolved just like backterias like Chlamydia.

No, you cannot get chlamydia from yeast infections. Chlamydia is a bacteria and yeast is a fungus. Sometimes the symptoms are similar, and you can have both chlamydia and yeast at the same time, but yeast does not cause chlamydia.

Cervical cancer and abnormal cervical cells are 99% of the time caused by a virus called HPV, or human papillomavirus. Since it is a virus, it is not linked to Chlamydia.

However, both HPV and chlamydia are sexually transmitted, so if you have sex with someone who has both HPV and chlamydia, you put yourself at risk for getting both infections.

Chlamydia is curable with a specific antibiotic that your healthcare professional can prescribe. Yeast is curable with over the counter medications such as Monistat or with a prescription-only pill called Diflucan. Currently there is no cure for HPV.
