My girlfriend has staph infection and it's in her blood

Patient : My girlfriend has staph infection and it's in her blood and the doctor said that we can't have sex. I want to know if we can have sex\
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to ATD. It is better to avoid sex. This is because the infection can be spread via the saliva o r any of the secretions in the body. If you have sex and she has the MRSA type of infection, you will get a severe infection which will be tough to treat. I recommend that you be very careful when you are around her. Take precautions to keep healthy. And avoid sex till she is completely fine. I hope this helps you. All the best.
