Lyme Disease: Probably an STI

0

A recent study in The Journal of Investigative Medicine indicates that Lyme disease can be spread through sexual contact, and not just through the bites of infected ticks.

The study followed couples with one infected partner and one non-infected partner, who opted to have barrier-free intercourse. A post-sex test revealed that the previously non-infected partners had acquired the same strain of Lyme disease as their partners.

Another fun fact: it looks as though folks with vaginas are at about twice as likely as their penis-ed partners to acquire Lyme disease through vaginal intercourse.

Obviously, this is a huge bummer. Lyme disease is no joke! Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon about the best ways to keep ourselves and our partners Lyme-less.
