Hi XXXXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

As per there is no evidence of STDs in your wife, it appears to be safe to swallow or drink vaginal fluid.
A woman's vagina is acidic on the pH scale to counteract bacteria and other harmful invaders and it will give sour feeling on ingestion.

Vaginal secretion are under control of hormonal response and massive secretion occurs during sex and orgasm.
Its personal preference to ingest vaginal fluid or not.

She should avoid frequent washing of vagina with water and soap as this will remove protective mechanisms of female genital tract and may predispose to STDs i.e. candidiasis and others.

There also appears to be high chances of Herpes infection as virus of herpes remains in dormant condition in nerve fibres of affected site and may spread to sex partner.

In such cases, disease may spread to you.

Hope that helps.
Let me know your other query.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Can My saliva cause vaginal yeast infection to my wife because of oral sex. And Can swallowing her vaginal fluid cause mouth yeast infection to me.
As we are husband wife and loyal to each other the risk of other STDs and STIs is almost nil whether we perform oral or normal sex. Is it Correct?

Hi XXXXXXX
Yeast or candidiasis is an opportunistic infection caused by a normal commensal fungus "Candida albicans".
This fungus gets activated by breech in immune system.
Frequent washing with water and soap may cause proliferation of candida.
As both of you are loyal, there appears to be least possibility of precipitation of yeast infection.
Keep enjoying,
