Was considering going to South India next year but saw that it was a level 2 warning (same as the US) with current or past cases of Zika but no new ones. We’re currently trying - should we risk it?

It depends on which area in south India. Most places are perfectly safe and there are folks getting pregnant and delivering healthy babies. The airports have removed the Zika virus warning that they had earlier. No concern. We are also trying , we are traveling but to Chennai only.

I read that there were no new reports in some area. I think I’m still on the fence about even the slightest chance of Zika. We’ve been trying for 6 months and don’t want to have to take any break if any chance we catch something.

If you know you’re not pregnant before you go, the guidance for women is abstain for a couple of weeks when you get back. For a man, believe it’s 6 months as Zika can live in semen for that long. If you’re concerned, you could get tested for Zika when you return. It can be asymptomatic. My gynecologist suggested we not chance it after traveling to a Caribbean island.

Thanks for sharing what your gynecologist said. As the male, I don’t think I want to have to wait 6 months since you said Zika could be asymptomatic.

I am project manager in clinical research industry (CRO). After earning PhD, I gave up my science dream to take a more stable job. After slowly climbing the ladders, I feel like I finally got a seat at the table. Half the days I like the hustle, but now I miss being creative. I want to take more brainstorming, decision making responsibilities but I don’t see that in the career path for PM. Career path usually goes like this- Sr PM, Director l, Sr Director, and so on. But all do same work.
