Ninety-eight semen specimens were obtained for Ebola virus (EBOV) RNA screening from 68 men in Guinea during the convalescent phase of EBOV infection. Ten samples from 8 men were positive for EBOV up to 9 months after onset of the disease, with decreasing trends in the proportion of positive samples and the level of viral RNA. Safe sex practices should be observed after discharge from treatment centers.
