Pregnancy Sex Tips: Oral Sex With Baby On Board

Q: Is it safe to have oral sex while I'm pregnant?

A: Receiving oral sex is fine if you're having a low-risk pregnancy. In fact, many women find that oral stimulation is a pleasurable alternative if intercourse seems clumsy and uncomfortable. However, you should avoid it if your husband has an open cold sore. That could be a sign that he has a type of herpes virus that could potentially be transmitted to you -- and could cause birth defects in your unborn baby. This risk is low, but to be on the safe side, talk to your doctor if you're concerned. --Julie Taylor
