lupus through sexual contacts?

Hi just saw that Houston Rocket's head coach Kevin McHale's daughter passed away due to Lupus.  My question is how was lupus transmitted? Can it be transmitted via sexual intercourse and what is the chances of infection?

Hi!
No, lupus is not a sexually transmitted disease. It is an autoimmune disease where you body makes antibodies against your own skin, bone, muscle and organs. The cause of this autoimmune trigger is not known. This is not something which you can transmit to others.
Hope this helps. Take care!
