Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC)
The CDC interim guidance for the prevention of sexual transmission of Zika virus, updated in July 2016, applies to all men and women who have travelled to or reside in areas with active Zika virus transmission, and their sex partners. Potential sexual exposure entails having unprotected sex with a person who has travelled to or lives in such areas. Sexual exposure includes all sexual practices exposing to genital secretions. CDC expands its prior recommendations to cover, non-pregnant and all pregnant couples, including pregnant women with female sex partners. CDC’s recommendations for couples planning to become pregnant have been published separately.
