RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) AND SEXUAL HEALTH

Now there are few people in the civilized world who know nothing about the coronavirus (technically COVID-19), whose pandemic is causing major changes around the world. With this writing, the story evolves every day and there is no way of knowing exactly how the pandemic will take. It is clear that coronavirus is a major health concern – and this raises the question of whether it has sexual or specific concerns about penis health.

The answer is yes, somehow. At least as far as is known now. (It should be noted that the information below is for educational purposes only and should not replace the advice of a qualified healthcare professional who should be consulted on any coronavirus-related person.)

Corona virus

It is known that the current corona virus is more effectively transmitted through infected droplets that pass from one person’s mouth or nose to another person’s mouth. For example, if a contaminated person sneezes in front of a second person, there is a good chance that the second person will also be contaminated. (It should be noted that in both cases – the person who sneezes and the person whose face is sneezed – no one can know they have coronavirus. In most cases it is asymptomatic – but it can be passed on to someone else who may not be asymptomatic. .)

It is also believed that coronavirus can be transmitted through contact with a contaminated surface. For example, if a person with the virus spreads the germs on a door handle, a person who touches the door handle can collect the germs. If you then touch the face with the affected hand, you can transmit the virus to yourself in this way. However, this method of transmission is less likely than direct transmission from the mouth or nose to another face.

Sexual health

How does this affect sexual health? Of course, if sneezing or coughing can transmit these infected droplets, this can also be a kiss. Couples engaged in kissing who have an infected partner therefore have a significant risk of contracting both couples.

What about other sexual acts? No other version of the coronavirus was deemed sexually significant. However, it is obvious that a woman infected with coronavirus, for example, has oral sex with a man who then touches his penis and face, increases the risk of infection very well.

Other apparently innocent sexual health related acts could also cause problems. For example, it may also be possible to go on a date and share food (“You must try it!”) Or drink wine from the glass of an appointment.

Even something like online dating apps should be seen. How many people regularly clean phone screens? Swiping right with an infected finger can potentially cause a problem.

Conclusion: if a person believes they are infected, it is best to (1) test immediately and (2) avoid sexual contact (and other physical contacts) until their health is known. And it is important that people pay attention to possible infected surfaces, which is why they often wash or disinfect their hands and also screens or other objects they often touch.

I hope coronavirus will soon be brought under control and it will not be a sexual health problem yet.
