Bilharzi sexually transmittable

Hi,

I travelled in Malawi and swam in the Lake where Bilharzia is very common. I do have a medication against this, but was wondering whether Bilharzia is also sexually transmittable and that as a consequence my girlfriend should take the medication as well.

Many thanks!
