lyme std?

I've heard that lyme can be transmitted thru sex? Does anyone know? If yes, is there anyone here who got it as an std? Thanks...

cooty.

Re: lyme std?

I've also read that lyme doesn't live in the blood only in tissue. If that's the case how can it possibly be an std? And if it was an std wouldn't everybody have it?

Re: lyme std?

Hi cooty. From what I understand, there is no actual proof of Lyme being sexually transmitted; however, some doctors think it is possible.

Do you think you have Lyme disease?

Re: lyme std?

Hi cooty. My recommedation would be to practice safe sex as a precaution.

Are you getting treated by a Lyme doctor? Were you tested for all the co-infections that ticks can transmit?

Re: lyme std?

i have seen two seperate llmd's who both beleive it can be passed through sex, but that it would be harder for a woman to pass it to a man than vice versa... my doc said there is about a one in one hundred chance of me passing it to my husband.

Hi Cooty.....people also get it from blood transfusions...so it is not just restricted to tissue....
