I have heard recently that it can be. Just wondering how much truth there is to this. I am currently in a relationship with someone that has lyme disease. Would really like to know before we go much farther in a relationship.

Lyme disease cannot be passed through sexual contact.


If your partner has this disease, it can be effectively treated.
