Was bitten by cat. Took Verorab injection. Can I have sex during treatment?

Hello, I was bitten by a cat on the street in Thailand. There was no blood but there was a small bite mark where I could see that the skin had been broken. I imidiately went and got the verorab injection and plan to finish the course of the treatment. My question is, can I still have sex during this period? And are there any activities I should not participate in?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You can have sex and continue with all your routine acivities during the course of vaccination. There is no contra-indication or restriction for doing any particular activity, including sex. Drink plenty of fluids and eat at regular timings.

Verorab is a anti-rabies vaccine and it is good that you have sought immediate medical attention and treatment. Please complete the ful course of vaccination, exactly as per schedule.

Wish you all the best.
