The Zika virus is spreading and has made it's way to the United States. You need to educate yourself and learn everything you can about this virus. It can be transmitted in multiple ways and it could soon impact your dating life.
If you've spent even a few minutes of your time watching CNN or your local news channel, there's a good chance you've heard about the Zika virus. It's no secret that this virus has caused a ton of issues in South America. Even worse, the Zika virus is spreading beyond South America and into the United States. When something starts to spread like this, you need to do two things. The first thing to do is begin to worry. The second thing to do is educate yourself. That said, I'm going to share everything that I know about this virus and how it may begin to impact your sex life.
Okay, we're pretty casual here at AskMyGF and I'm not going to get to scientific here. However, I'll do my best to let you know what's most important about Zika, sex, and the transmission process.
Concentrations Are Extremely High
If you contract the virus and you start to show signs of symptoms, then you need to get checked and wrap it up! According to an expert site that reports on infectious diseases, ID Stewardship published a report confirming that Zika has officially been documented as being sexually transmitted in the United States.
The cases in which transmission has been documented show that concentrations of the Zika virus are very high in semen. The conclusion I've drawn from this is that Zika may not be detected in blood at times but it can be easily detected in semen with enough time passing after symptoms arise.
Sexual Transmission Is Easy, Regardless Of Your Sex
I've learned that sexually transmitting Zika isn't difficult. The virus can be transmitted from male to female, male to male, female to male and perhaps even female to female. What does this mean exactly? It means that you need to wrap it up and always use protection. If you haven't been careful in the past, I encourage you to do so from here on out.
Apparently, condoms cannot 100% guarantee that transmission will not occur. However, if you decide to use them and you use them correctly, they can significantly reduce the chances of acquiring the virus.
Long-Term Effects Are A Mystery
We know that this virus causes birth defects and if you're planning on having a baby then you want to do everything in your power from contracting the virus. People are afraid to make too many claims at this stage. We just don't know what long-term effects may be caused.
Dating And The Virus
I want to make it clear that I'm in no way shape or form advising that you stop trying to hook up with people. I'm all for using meet and fuck sites to try and get laid. I use them myself every single day. However, I always use protection no matter who I'm having sex with. Not to mention, it would be completely irresponsible of me to recommend you raw dog some local girl, drop a load in her and cause a ton of problems that could easily have been avoided. Help society reduce the spreading of Zika virus and other STDs by wrapping it up pal!
