Brief Answer: Malaria is not transmitted through sex/oral sex Detailed Answer: Hi Ms XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. Malaria is transmitted by two ways only :- * by a bite of an infected mosquito * Transfusion of blood from an infected individual. Therefore, physical contact, normal sex or even oral sex DOES NOT transmit the disease. The treatment with capquine is usually for 10-14 days. Hope I have addressed to your concerns to your complete satisfaction and you find my response helpful and informative. I will be happy to answer further queries, if any. Fond regards and have a nice day, Dr. Rakesh Karanwal
