Is orchitis contagious?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 02/02/2018

Basically, no. However, the agents that cause bacterial or viral orchitis can be transmitted and it is therefore necessary to take the necessary preventive measures.

In the case of sexually transmitted diseases, it is very important to use a condom until a complete cure is achieved, as well as to carry out a treatment with antibiotics in both members of the couple.

It is also very important to vaccinate against the mumps virus in childhood.
