 ASK THE DOCTOR - Involuntary Ingestion of Fluids


If vaginal fluids are contaminated with infective agents (bacteria, virus, fungus) it can transmit infectious diseases during cunnilingus. Certain fungal, viral infections and parasitic infestations are commonly present on the genitals and may not be visible to the naked eye. A person may be harbouring these infections without manifesting any signs or symptoms, and oral sex could cause transmission of such infections to the partner. HIV/AIDS can also get transmitted through cunnilingus if either of the partners is infected. If the person is truly not infected with any STD, in that case swallowing vaginal fluids involuntarily may not be harmful.
