Thanks for query,
Your flu like symptoms may be transmit by close contact of a person via air not by sexual contact.
usually sexual infection has local symptoms like discharge from pelvic parts itching etc.
Pelvic infection may not transfer to generalised infection of body unless a severe type or in septicemic condition.
