And what if the woman is pregnant? Abstain for 6 months?
I'm sure some would recommend that, though would it even make a difference if she was already pregnant? I though it was just possible to pass along the virus if you were getting her pregnant?

No, when pregnant is the most serious part.

interesting and good point, but then shouldn;t the mans ability to use protection be allowed?

Not really a question if she's on BC.
And if you have Zika you better not be trying to make a baby.

So that's the only scenario where the question arises.

4 out of 5 people get the virus and don't know about as they don't develop symptoms, making an argument that every man that has been there may have a hetter to use BC and if wife is not on BC she may be pregnant,

The biggest problem with the zika virus is that there arent any conclusive research. They li lnked it to this birth defect yet they don't know for sure how long it stays in the body . Thats why they are saying dont get pregnant for some time if you or your spouse has had zika

Is there any other case where halacha allows a male to use protection?

Maybe abortion comes before Zera Levatala, I can't see a Rav allowing a condom in any condition

Lehavdil, the Pope is giving permission to use contraceptives instead of abortion because he feels it's the lesser of 2 evils.
