Well, for starters, you'd think someone with Chalmydia would have learned the hard way that latex barriers are a good idea: for vaginal, anal and/or oral sex, at a minimum. So, unless a couple has been practicing all aspects of safer sex monogamously for six motnhs, we'd advise partners use a dental dam during cunnilingus.

As well, someone currently being treated for any STI should abstain from partnered sex until the treatment is finished.

Per chlamydia specifically, it is a genital infection, not an oral infection, though in rare cases, it can infect the eyes.
