Oral sex

I've researched that you can't get pregnant from swallowing semen, but why? What if the stomach ached doesn't kill it? I understand that it can't travel to the egg from the stomach but what if it survives until it gets to the urine and then when i pee/poop it out it gets near my vagina and back in?! Or does it get destroyed before it can make its way to my urine. Thanks .)

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with this question.

Sperm in the semen ejaculated in the mouth is destroyed by the digestive enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract.

Anything that is swallowed goes in the esophagus, on to the stomach, into the small intestines and finally into the large intestine where is passed out of the body.

No way it can get into your urine. No way can it reenter your body after a bowel movement.

Thank you for this! Why is it that the sperm cannot get in the urine once gone through the digestion process and why is it unable to re enter the body after bowel movement? Not even if it is really close to the vagina?

Hi Anonymous,

Time for you to brush up on human anatomy. Urinary tract and digestive tract are two separate systems that are not connected.

Think it through,
