Is it bad to have oral sex?

Whether or not people engage in oral sex is totally up to them!

Sometimes people believe that because oral sex isn’t vaginal or anal penetration, there is little to no risk of contracting an STI/STD. But the fact is, you can get all STIs, (except for pubic lice and Trichomoniasis) when engaging in oral sex with someone who has the infection. There are four ways in which someone can contract an STI. They are…

  • Blood
  • Skin to skin contact
  • Sexual fluids (vaginal fluids and semen)
  • Vaginal birth and breast milk

When someone is engaging in oral sex, they can come into contact with someone’s blood,sexual fluids, and/or skin. But the good news is that there are ways to prevent STI transmission from happening! Using a condom for oral sex on a penis will help drastically reduce your risk of transmitting an STI.  If oral sex is being performed on the vagina or anus, a dental dam can be used to help reduce your risk also! You can pick up free condoms and dental dams at Teen Clinic!

I gave a guy a blowjob……

….he didn’t cum inside my mouth. But later on told me he had herpes. Is there a chance I got it now ?

 

This is a great question! Lets talk a little bit about Herpes!

There are two different types of Herpes, Herpes Simplex Virus I & II.  Type I presents itself as cold sores on the the mouth so it is not considered an STI unless it’s transmitted through unprotected oral sex (mouth to genital contact).

Type II is usually called “Genital Herpes” because it presents itself as open sores on the genitals, and is transmitted through unprotected sexual skin to skin contact.

So, if there was skin to skin contact without any barrier methods ( like a condom) there would be a risk of transmission. It is also possible that someone can transmit the Herpes Virus even if there is no visible sore. This is because right before someone has an outbreak  the virus is under the surface of the skin trying to break through. During this time a person may feel tenderness, tingling, or see discoloration in the area. During this time the virus can be transmitted.

The only way someone can know for sure if they have Herpes is to have a provider take a swab of an active sore. So if you begin to experience any symptoms (sores or blisters on either the genitals or the mouth) you should see a provider so they can test for it.

In the future, it’s important to remember to use barrier methods like condoms ore dental dams during oral sex to reduce the risk of STI transmission.

Can you get catch Chlamydia in your mouth?

Lets talk a little bit about STIs. STIs can be a very real risk for people if they are engaging in certain types of sexual contact. It’s good to know that when it comes to STIs there are four modes of transmission.  They are…

  • Blood
  • Sexual Fluids (Semen and Vaginal fluids)
  • Skin to skin contact
  •  Breast milk and Vaginal Delivery

In order for someone to contract an STI, they would need to engage in sexual activity with a person who already has an STI in which one or more of these modes would come into play.

Sometimes people think oral sex (mouth to genital contact) is not a risk for STI transmission, but the fact is, you can get all STIs, (except for pubic lice and Trichomoniasis) when engaging in oral sex with someone who has the infection, because when someone is engaging in oral sex, they can come into contact with someone’s blood, sexual fluids, and/or skin

The good news is that there are ways to prevent STI transmission from happening! Using a condom for oral sex on a penis will help drastically reduce your risk of transmitting an STI.  If oral sex is being performed on the vagina or anus, a dental dam can be used to help reduce your risk also! You can pick up free condoms and dental dams at Teen Clinic!

It is important to know that even though someone can get an STI from oral sex, a lot of the time STIs don’t show symptoms.  The only way for someone to know for sure if they have an STI is to get tested. Teen Clinic offers many different types of STI tests, including blood tests and urine tests. If you have any more questions about STIs or the Teen Clinic call us at 303-442-5160.

I was recently diagnosed with Chlamydia and took antibiotics for it…..

 ……Six days later someone gave me oral sex. Could that person get infected?

Let’s start out by talking about what Chlamydia is and how it can be spread or transmitted.

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted bacterial infection of the vaginapenisanus, or throat. Chlamydia is spread through vaginal fluids and semen. Someone can get Chlamydia through unprotected oral sex, vaginal sex, anal sex, and genital to genital contact.

Chlamydia is cured with antibiotics. When someone is being treated for Chlamydia, it is very important that they and their partners are treated and finish the medication, and abstain from sexual activities with other people for 7 days. This will help ensure that re infection doesn’t occur.

If there was sexual contact before 7 days,  it is likely Chlamydia was transmitted and/or reinfection occurred.  The best thing someone could do in this situation is see a medical professional and get tested/ another round of treatment.

Remember, condoms and dental dams can help reduce the risk of STI transmission.

Is it safe for me to do oral sex on my girlfriend’s anus?

Good question!

Lets talk a little bit about STIsSTIs can be a very real risk for people if they are engaging in certain types of sexual contact. It’s good to know that when it comes to STIs there are four modes of transmission.  They are…

  • Blood
  • Sexual Fluids (Semen and Vaginal fluids)
  • Skin to skin contact
  • And Mother to Child (Breast milk and Vaginal Delivery)

In order for someone to contract an STI, they would need to engage in sexual activity with a person who already has an STI in which one or more of these modes would come into play.

There is a risk of STI transmission during mouth to genital contact on the anus. In order to reduce this risk, someone could use a dental dam to help protect from STIs.

Teen Clinic offers dental dams for free. Walk in or call us if you want any, or if you want to make an appointment call us at 303-442-5160

 

So if I have a cold sore on my mouth….

….and I give my girlfriend oral will she get Herpes down there?

This is a great question! Lets talk a little bit about Herpes!

There are two different types of Herpes, Herpes Simplex Virus I & II.  Type I presents itself as cold sores on the the mouth so it is not considered an STI unless it’s transmitted through unprotected oral sex (mouth to genital contact).

Type II is usually called “Genital Herpes” because it presents itself as open sores on the genitals, and is transmitted through unprotected sexual skin to skin contact.

Even though Herpes Type I is not considered an STI, if someone has Herpes Type I and preforms oral sex on a person, it can transmit to that person’s genitals.

Also, if someone has Herpes Type II and someone preforms oral sex on that person, Herpes type II can be transmitted to the mouth.

Using condoms and dental dams can help reduce the risk of STI transmission during sexual contact.

It’s also a great idea to get tested regularly if you are sexually active. Most STIs are asymptomatic, meaning that there are no symptoms but that the STI is still causing harm to the body. Because of this, getting tested on a regular basis is a great way to ensure that you’re healthy.

Teen Clinic provides free or low-cost and confidential STI testing. Remember that flavored condoms and dental dams are effective methods for reducing the transmission of STIs during oral sex! Until you are tested and treated, abstain for sexual activity or use condoms and dental dams.
