Journal Article: Sexual Health in the Era of COVID-19

May 20, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

The Annals of Internal Medicine published a new article indicating that all types of in-person sexual activity pose risk for transmission of COVID-19. The article also notes that abstinence-only recommendations are unlikely to be effective, and that sex-positive recommendations regarding remote sexual activity and how to balance intimacy and personal safety should be considered. Finally, it will be important to continue to discuss the risk of STIs and unintended pregnancy with patients and encourage use of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis.
