Why is it not safe to have oral sex when you are pregnant?

Why is it not safe to have oral sex when you are pregnant?

Below: For the most part, yes, oral sex is safe. Licking is fine, but blowing into your genital area is a no-no. Forcing or blowing air into the vagina could cause an air embolism (a bubble of air that gets into your blood circulation). This rarely happens, but it can be life-threatening for you or the baby.

And during the third trimester, if your partner has ever had oral herpes, he should avoid giving you oral sex altogether, whether or not he has symptoms. If you're not sure what your partner's HIV status is, use a dental dam (a sheet of latex that you place between your genitals and your partner's mouth).

Not sure if I have trich or not I'm still waiting on my results and my partner hasn't been tested yet but is it safe toperform oral sex on my partner?

Maybe safe, but...: Trichomonas itself isn't a problem for oral sex; it probably doesn't infect the oral cavity. However, trichomonas is an STD, and the frequency of other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc) is far higher in people with trich. If you aren't sure about those STDs, it's best to avoid all sex for the time being, or perhaps limit to hand-genital contact. ...Read more
