If you have a fever with a common head cold , can the other person catch your cold through sexual intercourse?

Respiratory droplets: Colds are transmitted through inhalation of respiratory droplets, or contact with contaminated surfaces. During sex, you are close enough to be exposed to respiratory droplets. You would not catch it due to sexual intercourse itself, but rather from being in very close proximity.
