My husband is a heppie and is recieving peg/rebetol therepy for 2 mths now.
I - his wife, am concerned about contracting the disease via oral sex. I
realize that this a blood to blood disease but isn't the probability of
cross infection more possible during an active sex life? Also,the concern
extends to the risk of side effects due to the medicine that supposedly, in
99% of cases can cause birth defects in unborn children. If the medicine can
be so potent to cause such a risk -wouldn't it be likely for the
contaminated semen to somehow harm me? Have studies been done to prove your
answers so as to put my mind at ease?
