More infectious than blood?
Sep 6, 2002
During web surfing, I found a research report that,at certain stage of menstruation cycle(one week before menstruation? may be..) viral load of cervical secretion is higher than that of blood!! Does it mean that woman's genital fluid at this point is more infectious than blood?
Response from Dr. Little
No - just more infectious than at other times during her monthly hormonal cycling.
