Re: Lyme being transmitted through sex
I have read that 'it is possible' I have yet to KNOW or MEET a lymie, whos husband or significant other has lyme, from 'sex' they all (that I knew of and currently) had a tick bite they can recall, not blaming their spouse or significant other.
Lyme is a (yes I won't spell it right) spirochete germ, which compared to other spirochete diseases, those are and can be sexually transmitted. I have yet to (not thatI have not read up on medical abstracts in QUITE AWHILE), find something to 'prove' or 'disprove' its transmission sexually. My (now x) husband never got it from me, and we had a sex life, went down the tubes but we still had one lol (from the marriage not the lyme). Read up on medline or check out Columbia Universities website and see if there's anything mentioning such, it was never anything in my life, or currently, that hinders my sex life, from when I was my sickest, to now, that I am 'cured' or in 'remission' whatever you want to call it. I haven't been sick since 2002/2003 with lyme anymore.
