WVMike - have your wife start on astragalus - it should protect her from getting Lyme from any source. Have her start with 1,000 mgs a day in divided doses. If she has any response at all (and I'd suggest she do this anyway since we are coming into the height of tick season) have her slowly move up to 3,000 mgs daily.
The facts are there to support that Lyme is sexually transmitted as well - as someone else said, it's been proven beyond a doubt that it's cousin spirochete, Syphilis, is sexually transmitted. I've read that the Lyme bacteria isn't quite as virulent when sexually transmitted (it doesn't happen always), but that the chances are high enough that anyone that we are having sex with should be protected - because, seriously, we are wishing it on them otherwise if we know and are not doing anything.
Assuming otherwise is burying our heads in the sand, just as IDSA does about
their treatments and other aspects of this disease. We need to protect those around us - this is no different than doing tick checks on those we care about
