Zika can be transmitted sexually.  Pregnancy should be delayed after travel.  Use condoms for 8 weeks after travel for women and 6 months for men to prevent infection before conception

Use condoms throughout your pregnancy if your sex partner has traveled to a Zika affected area

 

 Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant and you or your sex partner have traveled to a Zika affected area.
