Hmmm…Sexual intercourse can really pose a risk to your health. I am not talking about Aids, but, about the Mononucleosis, the so-called ‘Kissing Disease’. A finding at the University of Edinburgh in United Kingdom, revealed that sexual intercourse could increase the virus that causes Mononucleosis. The sexually active students were found more prone to the EBV virus. An abstract from the research: A team of study authors led by Dr Dorothy H. Crawford revealed: Students who said they’d had intercourse during the study were more likely to become infected than those who reported no romantic relationships, as well as those whose relationships were limited to kissing and petting. The findings suggest that sexual intercourse itself makes EBV transmission more likely. The new findings suggest that sexually active teens and adults may be exposed to a larger dose of EBV through particularly “deep” kissing, or possibly through genital fluids, which can carry the virus. If a large “viral load” increases the odds of developing mono, the researchers note, then an EBV vaccine may be successful even if it merely decreases the amount of EBV in the body rather than providing complete immunity. I wasn’t aware that sexual intercourse could be so worse. Well, the words of relief are that the doctors have suggested a vaccine to counterpart the primary infection and prevent Mononucleosis.
