I read that pink eye and chlamydia can be the same disease.

I am a virgin. Me and my girlfriend (also a virgin) have only done oral and foreplay. A couple of days ago I got pink eye. I read that pink eye and chlamydia can be the same disease. What are the chances I got that strain and that it gave me chlamydia? I have no other symptoms and I started antibiotic eye drops the afternoon after I woke up with it.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Pink eye is not chlamydia, someone has extremely misguided you. It is conjunctivitis and needs soem treatment.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
