Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

Thyroid problem cannot spread by kissing. Thyroid is a gland in the neck which is outside the wind pipe and has no direct connection with the mouth. You do not have to be worried. You have not mentioned what exactly is the problem your friend is having. If it is thyroid swelling, then it could be Goiter, caused by iron deficiency and is not infectious. There are other causes of thyroid swelling as well. Ask him to consult an ENT surgeon and get an ultrasound study and blood thyroid function tests done

Hi,
Of course you can indulge in sex, without any issues caused by thyroid !!!. I cannot say the same about other issues.
Bye, enjoy yourself but be careful.
