Intimate Relationship In A State Of Pregnancy With A Husband With TB?
Hello Ekaswara, thank you for the question.
In general, the way in which TB germs are transmitted is through inhalation of sputum or sneezing that contains enough TB germs to cause an infection. Regarding your question whether it can be transmitted through kissing and intercourse, this disease is not transmitted through both of these, so if you want to kiss or have sex with your husband, you can of course do it without the risk of contracting TB as long as you don't inhale sputum sparks or sneeze from your husband. For more details, you can also read about TB transmission in the following article: TB transmission.
Regarding whether it is safe or not if the sputum results are negative, in general, if someone who is infected with TBC receives regular treatment and does not have other complications, the transmission rate has greatly decreased in the first 2 weeks of treatment.
But because you are pregnant where your endurance is in a state that is more decreased than women who are not pregnant and also you have close contact with your husband, it is advisable to at any time (or if you feel symptoms of tuberculosis) see a doctor to see whether you are infected or not, even though the two methods you asked for will not transmit the disease. It is also recommended to make sure your husband wears a mask or closes his mouth when coughing or sneezes, ensures that your husband undergoes regular medication, maintains good air circulation in the house, also ensures that the sunlight that enters the house is also good.
I hope this helps.
