Well, we know that Lyme bacteria like the mouth, so whether or not there has been any scientific evidence of it as of yet shouldn't matter. They are there and so they can be passed.
We have to remember that we are living "ahead of the science" - meaning that the studies to show us what works, what is 'risky' behavior and more is yet to come for most things. The science is still changing for us as more studies get done.
So if you care for the person, then be extra careful, take all the precautions and - most importantly - talk to them!!! They need to know what they are potentially risking by being with you!! I told my hubby before we even got together. Not an easy talk to have, but it's only right to let them know.
I just saw this in my quest for information. After my 6 spinal fusions and Mastectomy (yes men DO have them too sadly), I asked my surgeons, all 4 of them for a Doctor's Excuse to excuse me from sex forever or at LEAST one year
They refused leaving me as fair game for my younger wife to lay waste (hey, a pun?) to what was left of me. But this? THIS is just the excuse I was looking for! There is a God after all....
Well, you can use protection....although I guess that's not 100%
