First Time: Safe sex?

Jun 4, 2007

My girlfren and I've decided to have oral sex. Its our first time and we have no fear of any infections...

my question is, will swallowing of my sperm get her pregnant or swalling her vaginal fluid have any effect on me? could you please guide me. i searched the forum but couldn't find anything. thanx

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your question, like so many others in this forum, dramatically points out why age-appropriate sex education is essential.

To briefly address your questions, oral sex cannot lead to pregnancy and ingestion of uninfected ejaculate or vaginal fluids is not harmful.

Recheck the archives and related links for additional information about oral sex.
