Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Thank you for the answer. I understand about transmission in-utero and during vaginal birth. I hadn't known that it can't be transmitted through sperm. Thank you for that information. I guess my question was more about genetic transmission. I'm not sure if that's the correct term. Once one has contracted it, does it become part of one's genetic make-up? Similar to HIV.
