Hello! Apologies for another worms-related question, but my research skills are coming up with nothing! My household has been undergoing worm treatment following our recent home invasion. I read online that adults should avoid having sex when suffering from threadworms to avoid reinfection. However, I cannot find information ANYWHERE on the internet on how LONG sex should be avoided for. Must we abstain indefinitely?! We have taken our second (two-weeks on) dose of medication, and have a strict hygiene regime. I'm really hoping it's not six weeks from the first dose... Please send your opinions, this girl is getting thirsty! Thanks everyone!
