UTI and Oral Sex

luvseat posted:
My girlfriend has a Urinary Tract Infection. She began antbiotics Friday, 6 days ago. She says that she is recoverying slowly, but has not kicked it yet.

We have not had any genital sexual touch for over 10 days.

1) When is it safe for me to pleasure her vagina orally?

2) Is it safe for me to kiss her bottom now, even if she feels that she is not yet 100% recovered?

3) What is the risk to me if I pleasure her orally before she has fully beat the infection?

Sincerely,
LuvSeat

Urinary tract infections tend to actually be bladder (or kidney) infections; in other words, the bacteria that has caused this infection is located in the bladder (and, less rarely, in the kidney) and not in the actual urethra (the tubes leading from the bladder to the outside of the body).

Therefore, you would not be exposed to this bacteria during oral sex or kissing her anal area.
