"Can you get pregnant from oral sex?"

Hey Terra,

I just have a simple question to ask you... my boyfriend and I are almost 18, and we have oral sex. I've heard from people that you can get pregnant from swallowing a guy's sperm... then other people said you can't. Which is it? Can you get pregnant from unprotected oral sex, if you swallow a guy's sperm? Just to inform you as well, we're both well educated on STDs so that's not a problem in our relationship. It would really help if you could answer my question.




Dear Confused,

Let me set the record straight: the only way you can get pregnant is if a guy's sperm comes into contact with a girl's egg and fertilizes it. This means sperm has to enter the vagina. It cannot happen through oral sex!

What you should know, though, is that you CAN get an STD from unprotected oral sex. Did you know that?

For more info about sex please check out Planned Parenthood's Info for Teens: Ask the Experts. And for your question in particular:

"What form of protection can you use for oral sex?"

Also, take a look at The InSite's section on sex.

I hope this helps.

In friendship,
