Brief Answer: Usually, it cannot be sexually transmitted Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Usually, it cannot be sexually transmitted. The most common mode of spread is by the bite of mosquito and that too if it is female Anopheles. However, cases have been reported that it transmitted through blood transfusion, organ transplant, or the shared use of needles or syringes contaminated with blood. Anyhow, no cases have been reported that it is sexually transmitted. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
