According to Olsen, the conversation went as follows: “I’m like, ‘OK, reel it back, reel it back. What’s his name?’ Because I know my hacking skills can find this man in a second. As I leave, she tells me his name. When I find this man on Instagram, I found out that he is the ex of one of the men who has ghosted me this past year – and in their [Instagram] Story, they’re hanging out.”
The nurse tried to set up the TikToker with her son, even though he wasn’t interested in pursuing a relationship. Additionally, Olsen had good news to share about his STI test results: “Anyway, she just called me, and I do not have chlamydia this time. So, little wins!”

What Is Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It is a common STI that can affect all genders and spreads through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex.
How Is Chlamydia Diagnosed?
Diagnosis of Chlamydia can be done through a urine test or a swab test of the cervix, urethra, rectum, or throat. Chlamydia can be asymptomatic, meaning that an individual can have the infection and not experience any symptoms.
How to Treat Chlamydia
If you suspect you may have Chlamydia, it is important to seek medical attention. Treatment is typically with antibiotics and should be taken as prescribed by a healthcare provider. Inform sexual partners about your diagnosis, so they get tested and treated if necessary.
