Same old story that sounds familiar. At least this is documented now.
___________________

Scientists think they may have documented the first case of a sexually transmitted insect-borne disease, according to a study in Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Brian Foy, a vector biologist at Colorado State University who traveled to Senegal, was bitten by a mosquito and subsequently developed the Zika virus, which causes fatigue and joint pains.
When Foy returned to the U.S. and had sex with his wife, he unknowingly transmitted the disease to her.

you know.... spreading fear is a terrible thing.

is it possible to pass this disease on through sex, of course it is.
nothing, i repeat nothing, is impossible.
but not everyone who is exposed will suffer ill fate from being exposed.

some people actually have a properly functioning immune system that can battle off these invaders.

at the end of the day...we get what God gives us and we deal with it. because that is what we are supposed to do. and like i said before...anything is possible, including overcoming lyme and co-infections.

sorry...but i'm just tired of hearing about documented this and documented that...at the end of the day no one really knows anything. so theres my rant. i haven't ranted in a long time.

I agree... What will be next? Criminal prosecution of all those infected with Lyme that have sexual relationships???

Yes, I know protection is important.. That goes without saying but shall we persecute Lyme victims yet again by blaming them for transmitting this to others??

If we believe this to be true then everyone infected with Lyme should abstain because that would be the only way of not passing it on.

I'm so sick and tired of people challenging the fact that my husband has lyme. People think we are freaks, until we tell them that it was likely sexually transmitted.

Thank you for the link. It's not fear. It's information.

I wish someone would be able to explain why more research hasn't been done on this subject.

Undertheeightball.com is down.

filedropper.com/lymeshow doesn't work.

elenacook.org is three poorly-cited articles that don't answer my question.

I've seen Under Our Skin and know about the basic politics of Lyme Disease.

My question is: why aren't any scientists researching the different transmission vectors of Lyme Disease?

Is there not enough funding? Not enough interest? Are all the doctors who believe in chronic Lyme too busy treating patients?

The older scientist in UOS who died of ALS, I forget his name, was doing some very interesting research finding Bb in the brains of deceased Alzheimer's patients. Is there no one else like him doing research now? Are they unable to get it published?

Ditto what peacemamma said. We NEED to be aware.

Response January 16, 2004 to
Lyme Disease Association
Health & Human Services Meeting, DC, November 2003

4.CDC should provide additional research funding to examine alternative transmission routes of Lyme disease including other animal vectors, sexual transmission and trans-placentaI transmission.

Transmission of Lyme disease through alternate mechanisms has been investigated in a series of studies. To date, these studies have not yielded clear evidence for such transmission.

While alternate modes of transmission remain theoretically possible, it is clear that the great majority of Lyme disease cases are due to tick-borne transmission.

Given limited resources, we feel it is prudent to focus resources on preventing illnesses due to known modes of transmission rather than diverting them to evaluate rare or non-viable alternate routes.

Gains made in preventing primary infection through tick bites will also necessarily reduce any risk of illness that might exist due to secondary (sexual and transplacental transmission.

Research isn't being done on a large scale because of A: Lack of interest, B: Lack of funding, C: General Consensus that the question has already been answered and proven.

Same problem across the board with most aspects of this disease. The mainstream already assumes they have the answers, so why should they lift a finger to do more just because some of us say "Hey!"

The IDSA has us by the balls still.

The disease you mention is very different from lyme. Let's not try to compare apples to oranges.

--------------------
Bite date ?
2/10 symptoms began
5/10 dx'd, after 3 months numerous test and doctors

IgM Igenex +/CDC +
+ 23/25, 30, 31, 34, 41, 83/93

Currently on:

Currently at around 80% +/- most days.
