Can One Contract Leprosy After Protected Oral Sex?
Please don't worry!
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.
I understand your concern but I think you shouldn't worry.
The risk of getting leprosy for all people in the world is very low because more than 95% of us have natural immunity to the disease.
Even though leprosy it is known as a highly contagious , it is a good news that we now know it doesn’t spread easily and treatment is very effective.
However, in your case with a single contact you shouldn't worry even if your partner was infected.
You should know that you can get it only if you come into close , repeated and prolonged contact (over many months) with nose and mouth droplets from someone with untreated leprosy.
I hope my answer helps you.
