User :   My girlfriend has to take a urine test for alcohol, can her UA fail if I go inside her and/or she swallows my semen while I have been drinking?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello
Doctor :   the sample collected will be very strictly specific in these matters
Doctor :   and only the presence of alcohol in the urine or in the collecting device will affect the test
User :   but if the semen she takes into her body has alcohol in it?
Doctor :   it is not collected in the sample
Doctor :   the urine will not get mixed with the semen
User :   so there is no way for the alcohol in the semen to get into her urine, can't it be absorbed by her body?
Doctor :   the alcohol that is there in the blood will be filtered in the kidney and will be excreted in the urine. that is the alcohol which will be detected in the test
User :   if i go inside of her, that semen doesn't stick around for long periods of time right? sorry to sound silly but i really don't know?
User :   oh, that makes sense, since the semen she takes orally doesn't go into her blood right?
Doctor :   also it will get destroyed in the stomach
Doctor :   the quantity of the semen taken is too small to be detected for the alcohol
User :   great, thank you for your help!
Doctor :   thanks for consulting health care magic
Doctor :   bye for now
