[Question #6215] Any Risk

18 months ago
Hello,

I had protected both oral and vaginal sex. During oral, she stopped and released some air in the condom by lifting the base of the condom and her fingers were on the inside of the condom and then continued her hand/fingers had some of her saliva.

Any risk?

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for your confidence in our services and for your succinct, straightforward question. My reply is similar.

Condom protection is considered complete if the head of the penis and meatus (urethral opening) remain covered during sex. A small amount of vaginal fluids -- or in this case, saliva-- usually get under the rim. This does not create any significant risk of infection. In addition, saliva rarely if ever transmits STDs. There is some current disagreement between experts about possible transmission of gonorrhea by saliva. However, even then, getting saliva on intact skin of the penis -- or anywhere else -- is riskf reee.

So no risk at all and I don't recommend any testing. Don't worry about it. I hope these comments are helpful. Let me know if anything isn't clear.
