Public Health England has warned male travelers to use condoms for a month after returning from Zika infected countries
British couples should not try for a baby for a month if a partner has just returned from one of 23 countries affected by the Zika virus, public health officials have warned.
Public Health England (PHE) said men should wear condoms for 28 days after coming home from countries like Brazil and Mexico if their partner was at risk of pregnancy, or already pregnant.
Men who had suffered an unexplained fever while traveling, or who had been diagnosed with the virus, should avoid unprotected sex, or trying for children for six months.
Woman have already been advised to avoid traveling to infected countries if they might be pregnant or are trying for a child.
