Swine flu and your Sex Life

We’re all adults here, so there is no need to run screaming through the streets, but we must use some common sense to keep
Swine flu and your sex life

That includes taking a few extra precautions when it comes to your sex life. Swine flu scare is making sex life suffer. The scare of swine flu is forcing the people to stay indoor but simultaneously creating a fear among the couples to stay away from each other. The reason for staying away is not only the respiratory droplets but also contact formites. The basic fear is that infection can spread one day before the symptoms appear. This one-day fear window is making people afraid of active sexual life.

If one person in a family is suffering with flu symptoms (like fever more than 100.4, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue, or vomiting and diarrhea ) then all other family members might have a fear in themselves that they might catch those symptoms easily.

Maintaining 3-feet distance is creating a myth that husband and wife should sleep 3-feet apart on the bed. Sexual life requires close physical intimacy and that is getting affected because of flu mania. People are also afraid that kissing can aggravate infections; it should be avoided if any of the partners has flu symptoms. Flu is not only affecting sexual life between a husband and a wife, also it is affecting friendly relations, couples are canceling their dates, missing lunches, movies, late night parties, social gatherings and much more. Even the release date of some movies has been postponed because of flu mania.

Stay away from your partner for 7-10 days, if you have flu symptoms. Couples should not plan for conceiving if any of them is taking medicines for any type of flu. Pregnant women are at higher risk for complications from the flu–especially the swine flu where there is no vaccine
. Rather they should avoid social gatherings and stay at home in case of such epidemics as high degree fever can even precipitate abortion. Contact your doctor immediately, if found any of the above mentioned symptoms and definitely, stay out of the party life and social gatherings until you feel better!
