Can girl get pregnant from Oral Sex?

Answer

While this is a simple question in principle, it is clear that there is more to the story. If you are asking whether or not a woman or girl can become pregnant from swallowing sperm, the answer is that she cannot. However, it is true that people have become pregnant from some of the activities that surround oral sex. In this situation, it is best that all parties speak more closely to a healthcare provider to provide more details and work through this situation. An unplanned pregnancy can certainly be a trial for anyone, and can cause all sorts of changes at home and work. It is important that the pregnant person receive appropriate early pregnancy care, including the right nutrition recommendations. Please speak to your doctor in more detail about this question to make sure that all are safe and well and that appropriate counseling is given and received.
