Oral Sex Redoubled Calls For Protection

Oral Sex Redoubled Calls For Protection According to specialist, each out of 10 women who attended the clinic, seven confess, they do not use condoms for oral sex on their partners. It is worrisome because the risks of unprotected oral sex can bring to the body diseases such as herpes, syphilis and gonorrhea.

These diseases are easily transmitted from practice. A small injured area allows entry of a virus. Remember that minor injuries in the mouth are very common. Even the HIV virus that causes AIDS can be transmitted through oral sex although the chances of contamination are lower when there is penetration.

The pH of the mouth (e-neutral or slightly acidic) and only contact with the surface of the penis or vagina reduces the risk of contagion. But even though smaller the danger exists.

Protection During Oral Sex

Gynecologists are exhaustive to say that protecting the vagina for oral sex is totally inadequate. “For women the problem is greater because there is no specific support, as there is the male condom for oral sex,” says obstetrician Rosa Maria Neme. But is there any way to protect women? “Even the female condom will not protect, so the trick is to use the plastic film (the same used to pack food in the kitchen) to cover the vagina and there is no direct contact with the skin of the mouth,” says the expert.

“The paper should be covering the entire region of the vagina. The mouth can only come into contact with plastic, and not the vulva.” Female condom does not protect against transmission of diseases. Another tip is to use the gynecologist the male condom as a shield. Cut in half a condom and put it under the vulva may be an alternative. The upside is that they have flavors and textures to different factors that promote the use.

The problems are minor when oral sex is performed in humans, because the condom has a very efficient protection. The condom prevents the mouth in direct contact with the penis, providing the necessary protection. But remember that the condom should be used for all variations of sexual intercourse. There are people who just put in the middle of a condom during oral sex, a habit that overrides protection. It should be placed as soon as they move from foreplay to sex, says the expert.

Risks involved in semen

The contact of semen with the mouth can transmit diseases such as gonorrhea. If there is a mouth injury, contamination of STDs can happen?  Contagion can occur even when the semen is not swallowed. Condoms should be used for oral sex The transmission of STDs can happen even without penetration.

Many people still associate the use of condoms as a means of preventing unwanted pregnancy. But the condom is the principal means of preventing STD (sexually transmitted diseases). It should be used in all sexual relations, whether or not by sexual penetration (vaginal or anal). According to the evaluation of the Health Ministry, oral sex was the mode to “champion” of not using condoms. Many people consider that as this is not a genital area, there is little or no risk of contamination.

This of course is wrong. The lack of condom use in situations like this is a cultural habit that needs to be fought. People should understand that condoms should be used not only for vaginal penetration. The condom prevents contact with the blood of the mouth – if any injury in the region – and the mucosa of the vagina and anus, thus preventing the transmission of some diseases such as herpes, HIV and hepatitis.

The presence of the virus of AIDS in saliva is small – hence it is very difficult to transmit HIV through kissing. However, if there are sores in the mouth or even the presence of blood, the possibility is there of transmission. In the case of oral sex partners is essential in the use of plastic film. In some countries, is already used a product called Dental Dam. It is a strip of latex that was invented to facilitate the completion of dental procedures, but can be used to practice safe oral sex. And when the woman is on oral sex partner, should do it with a condom from the beginning, because there is only released during ejaculation semen which can transmit diseases: skin of the penis may contain lesions such as warts which are unseen with the naked eye that can be transmitted.

Lack of symptoms makes unprotected sex

The lack of symptoms in many cases, do not seek treatment and continue to practice sex without protection. The ideal is to know your own body. The timing of the bath is ideal for the person autoexaminar, noting that there is no mole or sore in the genital area . There will always reinforce the advice that women should visit regularly to the gynecologist’s office, and men to the urologist. In visits to the dentist, anyone can ask questions in relation to oral health. A visit to a doctor has a weight so important because the professional has the means to assess whether there is something wrong. As stated earlier, some diseases have no symptoms and visible naked eye, no pain or irritation.

Some stds

Gonorrhea, caused by a bacterium known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is transmitted through sexual contact, through infected secretions. The risk increases with the number of partners and the person can be infected many times in life. Symptoms depend on the region of the body where the infection is manifest, and some people have no symptoms. In women, infection can occur in the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, and symptoms may range from a runny to infertility or tubal pregnancy. In men, symptoms may appear such as pain during urination, milky discharge from the penis, pain and swelling in one testicle.


Hepatitis A is caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV), a disease that causes inflammation of the liver. It can be contracted, in terms of sex, by contact between mouth and anus. The diagnosis can be made either by observation of symptoms as a result of using a blood test. Since hepatitis B is through the spread of hepatitis B virus (HBV), which can be acquired through blood, semen or other contaminated fluid.

Therefore, contamination may occur not only in sexual ways, such as through contact with open wounds on other parts of the body. Another important form of contagion is at birth when the mother can transmit the disease to her son. Hepatitis C is caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) and low rates of sexual infection, although it may also occur. But the main route of transmission is through contact with contaminated blood. The most common means of transmission is through sharing contaminated needles. Diagnosis is based on a blood test.
