    Important tips

    If you get infected with Zika during pregnancy, you can pass it to your baby. It causes a birth defect called microcephaly and other brain problems.

    Zika virus also spreads through mosquito bites and through body fluids, like blood and semen. 

    If you're pregnant or trying to get pregnant, don’t visit a Zika-affected area unless absolutely necessary. Protect yourself from mosquito bites. 

    If your male or female partner may be infected with Zika, use a barrier method (like a condom) every time you have sex or don't have sex at all.

    If you're pregnant and think you may have been exposed to Zika virus, see your health care provider right away.
