ok so does the guy have to wear a condom while you give him head in order for u to protect urself from stds? and this may seem stupid.. but is there any way u can get pregnant from giving head and swallowing? because the sperm is inside of you. and another thing, can you get pregnant when you have your period? i've heard yes from the most reliable sources but definate no's from my friends... thanks alot!

Yes, condoms during oral sex ('head') is needed to protect both you and your partner from STD's.

You can't get pregnant from swallowing semen, but this puts you at a serious risk for STD's. Condoms are a must if you wish to prevent this.

You can get pregnant on your period. Unless you've been charting your cycles for 6 months or more and have regular cycles, it's hard to really say when you're ovulating (and thus, when you're likely or not likely to get pregnant).

Just for clarification...it's not the swallowing necessarily that puts you at risk for STD transmission. The simple act of having an unprotected penis in your mouth that puts you both at risk for STD transmission. So with or without ejaculation, you are both at risk.
