Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

I appreciate your intention of using condoms for the penetrative sex. Oral sex by itself is safe for the woman and you when you are on Methotrexate. However, it would be better to have the condom on before you receive oral sex. You could use one that is dotted for more pleasure.

If the HIV status of both of you is negative, you could well go ahead with unprotected oral sex. Beware of other STDs like Genital warts and Herpes as these spread through oral sex as well.

Wish you enjoyable sexual life.

Take care!
