People get gonorrhea by having sex with someone who has the disease. “having sex” means anal, vaginal, or oral sex.

Can you tell me if I swallow semen from a guy that had the flu or cold can I get sick?

Can you tell me if I swallow semen from a guy that had the flu or cold can I get sick?

Probably not...: Catching flu or cold is through air-borne transmission. So, it's very unlikely for you to get it by swallowing semen. But, sex is conducted under physical closeness so there is no guaranty to not inhale partner's exhaled vapor/air. Then, be aware and careful.

But, practicing healthy lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession will strengthen your immune ability making you more resistant to... ...Read more

Swallowed my husbands semen then we kissed, the end of the next day he got down on me. Can any left sperms in his mouth survive and get inside me?

No: It is unlikey that any sperm would be left after all that time and if any sperm were present, they would be dead by then. The enzymes in the mouth are not hospitable to sperm. ...Read more

My partner has strep throat and he thinks I could get it from swallowing his semen. Is that possible.?

My partner has strep throat and he thinks I could get it from swallowing his semen. Is that possible.?

Not from that: Attack rates for group A strep with close contacts run as high 50-100%.It is passed in saliva, not semen, unless he has found a way to put his saliva there. Since normal adults mindlessly bring their fingers to their face (where the saliva can be) that action can pass it to any object they touch. You are more likely to get it from a kiss than genital contact. ...Read more

Can you get an STD or bacterial infection from swallowing your own semen?

Can you get an STD or bacterial infection from swallowing your own semen?

Maybe: A person might be able to transfer his infection from"downstairs" to "upstairs". Some people say that is not "getting" an STD, because the patient already has the germ somewhere in his body. Others say it is indeed "getting" an infection, because the patient is creating a new throat infection. It is an unlikely scenario, but one of the possible events in life. ...Read more

Won't get strep: You might want to think about barrier protection until you really know a guy -- the HIV risk is relatively small but probably real. More seriously, you're at risk for gonococcal pharyngitis, which can be very troublesome. ...Read more

I swallow lots of precum. There was no semen in my mouth/any wound. Can I get hiv? Can the GI tract and saliva destroy the virus in precm in my mouth?

Yes. Get tested.: It is less likely to get HIV infection from oral sex but it is still possible. You should get tested if you have any concern that you were exposed. Stomach acid will kill the virus but it can enter through a mouth sore or membranes in your mouth. ...Read more

With Pcos, is insemination the only solution to get pregnant?

With Pcos, is insemination the only solution to get pregnant?

Not really: Insemination by itself would be an unusual treatment approach for PCOS unless the male partner has abnormal sperm - on in cases where there is no male partner. Insemination is mainly a treatment for male factor infertility: PCOS is a female ovulatory disorder so would usually be treated with ovulation induction, monitoring. Good wishes. ...Read more

Can a person get pregnant by artificial insemination if they've had their tubes tied?

Can a person get pregnant by artificial insemination if they've had their tubes tied?

No: When your tubes have been tied (successfully), the egg and sperm can't get together in the tube where fertilization occurs. Insemination just gets the sperm into the uterus. After a tubal, the options for pregnancy are tubal reversal surgery and in vitro. In vitro takes the eggs out of the ovary with an ultrasound and needle and mixes them in the lab with sperm. ...Read more

I'm trying to get pregnant am using insemination so when should I do the insemination my period was 10/25/14-10/28/14?

I'm trying to get pregnant am using insemination so when should I do the insemination my period was 10/25/14-10/28/14?

Depends: For most women ovulation occurs around the middle of their cycle. So first need to know how many days from 1st day of period to 1st day of next period. Divide that by 2. That number is roughly how many days from the first day of your period you would be expected to ovulate. Using home ovulation kits to check first morning urine also helpful. Best time to inseminate within 3 days of ovulation. ...Read more

My infertility evaluation, husband semen speem count is also fine. But still im unable ro get pregnent. What should I do. How ro treat. Pls advice.?

Sperm motility: Usually the male factors are investigated before you are studied. Sperm motility should be examined, but not just by any laboratory. The lab must have significant experience in doing such exams. Infertility specialists will usually be glad to let you or your doctor know where to get that done. Then you can move onto your own evaluation. ...Read more

My husband fingered me with his fresh sperm (semen only 5-10 seconds outsied snd which is very wet!)can I get preganant?

Probably yes, if...: If a woman is able to get pregnant with fresh sperm straight from a penis, then she is also able to get pregnant with fresh sperm from a finger. However, the penis can put a much larger amount of semen right at the cervix. The finger is better suited for other activities. ...Read more

I put my semens in my girlfriend's mouth. And she eats my semens. Now, is she get pregnant?

I put my semens in my girlfriend's mouth. And she eats my semens. Now, is she get pregnant?

No pregnancy: Semen must get in the upper vagina and up the fallopian tubes to fertilize the female's egg. Semen in the mouth enters the digestive tract where it is digested and can not achieve contact with the egg. So pregnancy is not possible unless the mouth contents are transfered to the vagina. ...Read more

Dr. We on ttc, after sex semen is coming out of vagina and sometimes I am having pain so we are not doing deep insertion. Can I get pregnt?

Trying to Conceive?: By TTC do you mean "trying to conceive"? Just want to confirm your abbreviation! In answer to your question, yes, you can get pregnant even though some of the semen comes out. I would see your OB-GYN to determine why you have pain, however. There may be an infection causing this. ...Read more

Due to pain we are not doing deep penetration on ttc. After ejaculation I put my finger inside and pushing semen near to cervix. Chance to get pregnt?

Certainly possible.: It certainly won't hurt to keep the semen nearer to the cervix. If the sperm is healthy and motile they should do well. One could also lie supine with hips up on a pillow after sex to keep semen in the vaginal vault. I would also be concerned about the vaginal pain on penetration and seek a physician consult for this. Good luck. ...Read more
