Dear Will Swallowing My Semen Make Me Sick?,

 

Swallowing your own semen will not make you physically ill. It is a natural substance produced by your body and perfectly safe for ingestion. It even has protein!

Your semen is safe for your girlfriend to swallow as long as you are free of sexually transmitted diseases. If you have had unprotected oral, anal, or vaginal sex with any partners in the past, you may have put yourself at risk for an STD, and you should get yourself tested before you have unprotected oral sex with your girlfriend. If you live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at (973) 971.6475. If you live elsewhere, get in touch with your local adolescent health center or local Planned Parenthood.

It's important to remember that there are some STDs that are transmitted from mouth to genitals. If your girlfriend decides it is safe to swallow your semen, you may want to have a talk with her about safer sex first.
