can you catch a cold by having sex?

I have in-laws coming to town to stay with us today for a week. I told my husband that we had to make last night count because we are staying in our den with no door on an air mattress while the in-laws stay in our room. Anyway, I have a cold and my husband refused to have sex because he thinks he will catch my cold. Any thoughts?

  • it really depends on his immune system. something most people don't know is that you are most contagious before you even know you are sick so if he was going to get sick it probably would have happened already.

  • he could get it from you by just being around you, and sex is pretty close contact.
