What Are The Side Effects Of Oral Sex?

Hey doctor,

So this is going to sound a little weird.....but I yesterday I gave oral sex and he ejaculated in my mouth and I swallowed. Now I have a sore throat. Do you think that my sore throat could be because of me swallowing semen or did I coincidentally get sick after the incident?

Hi,
Oral sex is not harmful to the person providing it. Semen doesnt survive in the stomach. You need not be concerned that your sore throat is due to oral sex. However, some stds may be transmitted via oral sex if the are open sores in the mouth.
