Oral sex

Oral sex is the stimulation of the vagina or penis using the mouth, lips or tongue. There is a greater chance of infection when giving oral sex, than receiving. This risk can be reduced by wearing condoms or using a dental dam.

You should avoid having oral sex if you have sores, cuts or ulcers on your mouth or genitals as this increases the risk of transmission of infection. As much as possible avoid having vaginal fluid and semen in your mouth and swallowing. It is also advisable to avoid brushing or washing your teeth before having oral sex, because gums could be sore after vigorous brushing.Oral sex should be avoided if you have any unhealed or inflamed piercings in the mouth or genitals or have a throat infection.
