Thank you in advance The person most at risk for sti's with oral sex is the person who is giving oral sex because of larger surface area exposed ( mouth, tongue, throat) compared to open tip of the penis ( opening of the urethra) Thank you for your prompt answer.
One last thing, if you were to contract an STI like Gonorrhoea or Chlamydia in your mouth or throat, would a urine test pick up the STI or would you need to do a throat swab?
The answer will depend on a few things: First, if you are a man or woman receiving oral, second, if you are using any protection during oral sex and third, what kind of oral sex you are having.
We have developed a Know your chances chart that breaks it all down for you.
The amount of contact with infective sources which causes infection varies with each pathogen but in all cases, a disease may result from even light contact from fluid carriers like venereal fluids onto a mucous membrane.
Healthcare professionals suggest safer sex, such as the use of condoms, as a reliable way of decreasing the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases during sexual activity, but safer sex cannot be considered to provide complete protection from an STI.
Then get smart about all the best birth control that's out there.
