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

Infection (Definition)

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more

Hello...I know this may sound odd but please don't be upset when I ask this. Can swallowing semen cause a sinus infection?

Infection: Generalized upper respiratory infections (uri's)including sinus infections, are caused by contracting the infectious agent (bacteria or viral) from an individual carrying the infection. The act of swallowing semen may not necessarily cause a sinus infection, but more likely it is inhalation of the agent during close contact with an infected individual, like heavy breathing, open mouth kissing, etc. ...Read more

If swallowing semen caused throat infection does that mean the semen was infected with an STD or is it an intolerance to semen?

If swallowing semen caused throat infection does that mean the semen was infected with an STD or is it an intolerance to semen?

Difficult to know.: Semen containing infectious organisms usually has to hit the back of throat or tonsils in order to initiate infection because salivary enzymes often destroy most organisms, but perhaps not all. Have seen pharyngeal and tonsillar gonorrhea, syphilitic lesions on tonsils, tongue and buccal mucosa. You should be thoroughly checked for STDs including HIV and protect yourself. Doubt semen intolerance. ...Read more

I want to give a guy I met a blowjob but I don't know anything about his sexual history and I don't know wether I should swallow his semen or not?

I want to give a guy I met a blowjob but I don't know anything about his sexual history and I don't know wether I should swallow his semen or not?

Please do not: Do either one! If he has or is a carrier of herpes, (which he may not even know or less likely even tell you if he did) you could become infected with it and suffer from outbreaks for the rest of your life. You as a person are worth much more that a few minutes of excitement and pleasure. If he is a gentleman he would not allow you to compromise yourself in such a personal way. ...Read more

Will swallowing semen effect my hypothroid medication? (Oroxine 50microgram pills) Should I be waiting half an hour etc after taking my medication?

Not likely: Semen is mainly protein and carbohydrates, but the amount from a single ejaculation episode is rarely enough to change the digestive properties, in terms of your medications. Take your medications as prescribed and recommended by a doctor, but don't allow the angst over medication timing, interfere with an otherwise healthy and safe sex life. ...Read more

I am noticing dry semen stains in my partners underwear, it's only happening approx once a week. Is this normal or could it be a sign of infection?

I am noticing dry semen stains in my partners underwear, it's only happening approx once a week. Is this normal or could it be a sign of infection?

Not semen. STD?: Semen doesn't leak in that way, leaving stains, unless he masturbates and ejaculates into his underwear. Sounds like urethral discharge. That's usually a sign of STD. However, STD discharge is unlikely to occur once a week, and STD chance depends on your and his sexual risks (other partners?). Your partner should see a doctor; if any STD risks, you both should be tested. Good luck! ...Read more

I swallowed my boyfriends semen last night and he is a heavy heroin user. And I had to take a UA today will that cause my test to come up positive?

Unlikely: It is not likely that swallowing the semen of a heroin user will cause you to have a positive urine test. However, by having a heroin user as a boyfriend you are exposing yourself to many dangers, including HIV. Please reconsider your choice to have relations with a drug abuser.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Is it unhealthy to swallow semen? My boyfriend really wants me to try it but I'm kind of grossed out about it and don't know if it's okay to do?

Is it unhealthy to swallow semen? My boyfriend really wants me to try it but I'm kind of grossed out about it and don't know if it's okay to do?

Like vs. Love???: They say it's the difference between 'Like' and 'Love' but I don't believe that. Tell him you will if you can share it with him. Technically it's not unhealthy unless it is infected. And you probably won't gain weight, it's only about 5 calories per teaspoon. But I'd bet if your boyfriend had his way he'd like you to try and gain weight with it! He's grossed-out by your period, so fair is fair... ...Read more

Swallowing dog semen ok to do?? I watched a woman do this, I know I'm sane but, I would really like to try it!! She said it was better than a guy

Dog semen: Please do not do that. There are all sorts of germs/infections you can pick up. Dogs romp in dirty places w/tics, bugs, dirt, etc. Also, you may begin to think less of yourself for doing that. Please focus on positive things and healthy choices like hiking, reading, music, etc. Peace and good health. ...Read more
