STD spreads from one person to another through various body fluids, including blood, pre-cum, semen, rectal fluid, breast milk, and vaginal fluid. Coming with contact with these fluids during oral sex increases the risk of syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, genital warts caused by HPV, and, to some extent, HIV. To avoid these, you can follow the following precautions. Like:

  • You should always take care of the partner’s health and the hygiene of your genitals. During anal oral sex, you should take special care of the cleanliness of the anus, because it contains a lot of dangerous bacteria. There may be a risk of infection.
  • Get yourself and your partner’s STD checked regularly.
  • You can use condoms, dental dams, tongue condoms, female condoms, plastic wrap, etc.
  • If you have oral sex, then you and your partner must get an oral screening done.
  • Do not have oral sex in case of any type of infection in periods or anus, penis, and vagina.
