We’re pretty sure your man will be happy to hear this answer: Yes, swallowing semen is totally safe whether you’re pregnant or not. In fact, practicing oral sex in general is safe — as long as your partner’s completely STD-free, that is. But if your partner is HIV-positive, aside from the risk to you, the virus can spread to baby, even during oral. So if that’s the case, you’ll definitely want to refrain from it for awhile and make sure you’re practicing safe sex otherwise, as well.
