Cunninglingus during periods

Apr 12, 2012

I recently performed Cunninglingus on a woman and noticed that there was tiny blood stain on the sheets afterwards. I was worried so I asked her if she was in periods and she said 'could be'!

We used condom for sex.

Now I'm really worried. Could Iget infected with *ANY* STD if I accidently swallowed her...gulp..bloody discharge?

Please let me know if and when I should get tested. I would be eternally grateful for a prompt reply!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C can be transmitted via blood contact. However, oral sex is a low-risk activity. Getting blood in your mouth could increase the risk of transmission IF she was infected with HIV or Hepatitis. However, the increase in risk would be slight and I would not be concerned.

In health,


worry about breastmilk comes out... please respond..I'm really worry and scared..
