    Default Zika virus

    Hi everyone

    We are currently TTC (getting faint BFP at the moment).

    At the beginning of May this year we went to Bali.

    I had heard about the Zika virus and risks to pregnant women but Indonesia was not on the warning list on smart traveller and I was not pregnant yet so we went.

    In the news recently (end of June) they mentioned that Zika has been known to stay in the male semen for up to 6 months and can be transferred during sex. And Indonesia was added to the warning list (as sporadic/limited) so I started to freak out a little bit..

    Would you be concerned??


    Indonesia was added to warning list a month or more after we returned home, we both do not recall getting any symtoms..

    Thanks.

    If you had known about Zika before going to Bali you could have done something about it. Now however, it's too late to change what's already happened so I would try not to think about it.

    Have either of you come down with any symptoms? Can you get tested so see if you contracted it to ease your mind?

    I understand there's an outbreak of Zika but that doesn't mean everyone who goes to Bali will get it. Lots of people went to Africa during the Ebola outbreak and most travellers didn't contract it.

    I wouldn't be concerned, I read this article awhile ago.
    Hopefully it helps ease your fears xx
