When can we have oral sex again after childbirth?

When can we have oral sex again after childbirth?

After about 6 weeks: As a general rule, sexual activity of any kind should wait until the vagina and perineum have completely healed and your bleeding has stopped. This will usually take about 4 to 6 weeks, depending on whether you had any tears or an episiotomy. After that, take it slow. As long as the sexual activity does not cause pain, you are unlikely to be damaging anything or threatening your health. ...Read more

Is sex safe in the third trimester? Can it cause preterm labor? What positions are best? Is oral sex ok?

Is sex safe in the third trimester? Can it cause preterm labor? What positions are best? Is oral sex ok?

Sex 3rd trimester: It is safe to have sex in the third trimester, as long as your partner is positioned so that his weight isn't on your tummy. Lying at the edge of a bed with your partner standing is usually the easiest. It is unlikely to cause preterm labor. Oral sex is ok. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: One of the advantages of oral sex is that has built-in contraception (sperm can't naturally swim to the egg, when the sperm is in somebody's mouth). Women have a really hard time getting pregnant through oral sex... as long as it's purely oral sex. ...Read more

Im on birth control and im on a weeksdose of augmentin i had oral sex am i still protected?

No : You can not get pregnant from having oral sex. Augmentin will not protect you from sexual transmitted diseases that you can get from oral sex. You would need to use a condom. ...Read more

Is it safe for a married couple to have only oral sex? I thought it could be a good alternative to birth control since i can't go on the pill.

Oral Sex: I may be missing the question you are really trying to ask. But, oral sex is a common and normal sexual activity that couples participate in. I would imagine that it may be difficult to keep away from intercourse if you are a couple in love. Remember there are condoms. They work very effectively as birth control. There is also a vasectomy for the male partner if you are not planning children. ...Read more

Unlikely: If your boyfriends father gave it to his mother before he was born there is some risk. If his mother (not father) was infected and she had proper prenatal care, the chance of her passing it to her infant was ...Read more

I found bright red blood following my female ejaculation during oral sex . Im on megestrol for breakthrough bleeding while I was on birth control .?

Interesting: This is probably related to the hormones you are taking & not female ejaculation. However, if the g spot area is stimulated during oral sex using a partners finger or instrumentally (i.e. Toys) bleeding could occur from a small laceration of the vagina. A simple speculum exam should tell. ...Read more
