Congestion after oral sex?
Posted on: 03/09/2004
my boyfriend says that he gets congested after giving me oral sex. he coughs up flem the next day. i was a complete virgin before being with him and dont see how this is possible. could it be that there are bacteria that do not agree with him? it makes me feel really embaressed.
I have really thought a lot about this and I don't think this is because of anything inside of you.
It sounds like he is either a little allergic to something or gets some spit into his lungs and that causes him to cough. If you use powders or perfumes that might irritate him. But, I think he probably breathes his own spit in and makes a little irritation in his lungs which causes him to cough the next day. There couldn't be anything in you that caused this reaction in him.
