My boyfriend likes to chew on my breasts and when he tried to have oral sex with me, my vagina was wet. Can this lead to pregnancy?
The oro-vaginal type is called cunnilingus. Couples indulge in different modes of sexual gratification from time to time. Many men are attracted to the breasts and private parts of females. Pregnancy is possible through unprotected peno-vaginal intercourse. Thus, there is no risk of pregnancy. If you are not comfortable, bring the issue to the notice of your partner.

I have been trying for a second child since three years. Can you suggest some medicines to thicken my semen.
The semen contains dead cells, glucose, enzymes, and prostatic secretions in addition to sperms. The thickness of semen is a person’s own creation. Literature states that around three cc of seminal fluid is ejaculated during sexual fantasies. Usually every cc of semen contains a few thousands sperms.

You can get your semen analysed at a laboratory. Increasing your sexual frequency to almost alternate days in the mid-cycle phase, may increase the chances of conception. Request your wife to lie down for at least ten minutes immediately after sexual intercourse. It increases the chances of sperms remaining inside the vagina for a longer duration.

When I withdrew after having sex, the condom was torn. Can this lead to HIV?
Condom tears though rare, are reported.HIV can be transmitted even by a single act of unprotected intercourse. Consult a doctor or visit ICTC at the nearest government hospital. Undergoing ELISA test for HIV is another option. The results will be out in a few hours time. If they are negative, no worries, else go for a WESTERN BLOT test for HIV for reconfirmation.
