ASRM Statement On Zika Virus

Just released by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM):

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine is closely following developments related to the Zika virus. At this point, it seems clear the virus has implications for reproduction and that it can be transmitted through sexual activity and reproductive tissues.

We urge patients who are pregnant, who are considering becoming pregnant, or those who may be involved as donors or recipients of reproductive tissues to exercise caution.

Due to the rapidly evolving understanding of Zika, we strongly recommend that our members and their patients follow the information and recommendations made available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC has issued “Level 2 Practice Enhanced Precautions” recommendations for certain areas, urging those pregnant or seeking to become pregnant to avoid travel to those areas, or use enhanced prevention and follow-up activities if such travel cannot be avoided. download movie Pride 2014 now
