Complications such as gonorrhea can be spread during unprotected intercourse

Despite being strongly associated with penetrative sex, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) generate a risk of contamination in any type of sexual contact. Among them, oral sex.

It is common for many people to have the habit of using condoms to avoid an unwanted pregnancy or infection with highly known diseases such as AIDS. However, condom use is recommended during all sexual acts. Understand!



Risks of unprotected oral sex

According to Rogério Tabet, a gynecologist and obstetrician, some of the complications that oral sex can cause are:

These infections are usually related to contact with semen and saliva. However, the expert points out that skin-to-skin contact and blood contact with a contaminated person can also generate the risk of STIs.

In the case of gonorrhea, for example, the patient has symptoms such as burning when urinating, secretion of pus in the eyes or urethra, abdominal pain and the presence of yellowish plaques in the throat.



Condom use during oral sex

The best way to avoid contamination during penile oral sex is through the use of male condoms. This type of condom can also be cut in half and used as a means of protection in oral-vaginal sex.

The tongue condom, although little known, is a condom created specifically for this type of relationship. According to Rogério, the method itself is recommended, but the lack of disclosure and guidance on its use means that the risks still exist.

“There are information difficulties; if they were explained well, [as camisinhas de língua] could be effective”, says the doctor.

Another practical way indicated by the specialist is the kitchen film, which can be placed over the vulva, avoiding direct contact of the mouth with the intimate region.

Inclusion of food during sex

Some people apply condiments, such as condensed milk, during oral sex. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the risk that this practice brings to the body’s PH, which can be changed, which increases the chances of infection.

“Condensed milk, cream and things that change the pH of the vagina increase the probability of the imbalance of the vaginal microbiota, of being more vulnerable to preexisting infections”, warns Rogério.

Importance of medical exams

In addition to using condoms to ensure sexual safety, it is best to seek medical advice. Periodic routine examinations, as well as proper cleaning of the region, help to significantly reduce the risk of transmission and contamination by STIs.
