A small study in China suggests that you can't transmit COVID-19 via sex.
MONDAY, April 27, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- You can't hug or shake hands these days without risking coronavirus infection, but new research finds that sexual intercourse might be safe.
Researchers analyzed semen samples from 34 men in China an average of one month after they were diagnosed with mild to moderate cases of COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus.
Laboratory tests did not detect the coronavirus in any of the semen samples, and there was no evidence of the virus in the men's testes, according to the study published online recently in the journal Fertility and Sterility.
While this small study suggests that the chances of sexual transmission of the coronavirus are remote, it wasn't comprehensive enough to fully rule out the possibility, the researchers noted.
