Oral sex is perfectly safe, but you sound uncomfortable and that is just as important as safety. We have a video on it that may help you: http://www.empowher.com/sexual-well-being/content/oral-sex-women-need-know-messy-okay-dr-klein-video.

We also have a lot of discussion on sexual topics: http://www.empowher.com/condition/sexual-well-being. Maybe this well be helpful as well. If you would like to discuss your specific worries, please write again. We'll be happy to help in any way we can.

Well I like it just fine! LOL! but I'm 39 years old, and I never used to get yeast infections or rashes or anything like that, but now I do. Since I got re-married And started having alot of oral sex. So I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. That's why I asked. What do you think?

I am 35 and sometimes I get these things because he has drank a beer before oral sex. I always get up after we have cuddled in the afterglow and go to the bathroom and rinse the outside off and urinate to prevent a uti or yeast infection. Maybe you are alergic to something he has before oral sex? Just a thought. Make sure he is being hygenic too.

Yeast infections occur for many reasons, and you may have to experiment to find the cause. If you are finding that you only have a yeast infection after oral sex, it may be some bacteria from around your vulva, your husbands mouth or his fingers are being pushed into your urethra.

You may try to avoid oral sex for a little while, and make sure that your yeast infections do not reoccur; it is important that it is not the same yeast infection "coming back", as you need to have the yeast infection properly diagnosed (specific bacteria) and properly treated (specific antibiotic to treat specific bacteria).

Yeast infections are known as the "honeymoon yeast infection" as women who are newly married (and, have sex frequently) can also have frequent yeast infections. Most yeast infections are caused by bacteria, and once you are diagnosed, treated and your yeast infection is "cured", you can practice some preventative measures:
1. Practice oral sex after a bath/shower, after your husband has a clean mouth and fingers
2. Practice oral sex with your partner being more gentle, and making sure he is not transferring bacteria from your perineum (area between your vagina and anus) to your vagina.

See if these simple changes help. If not, we can provide more suggestions!
