This is perhaps neither here nor there, but is a topic of great importance to me. My husband and I enjoy oral sex, but I have been plagued by UTI's in the last year we've been married. Also yeast or bacterial vaginal infections. I have tried brushing and gargling prior to, even wiping his genitals after oral sex, but before penetration. To no avail, I'm afraid. Hopefully, there is someone out there that can advise me.

Can saliva cause urinary tract infection? When ever i had a oral sex the next day i would be suffering with urinary infection which had a burning sensation when urinate.

I had a hysterectomy January 2011. My uterus and cervix were removed but my ovaries and tubes were left in tact. I feel fine but gained weight again, particularly in my stomach area. It is fatter than it has ever been. Is that normal? Also, I am divorced. Because of my own choice, I had not had sex years prior to surgery and also not in the past year since the surgery. Now I am thinking about it but I have concerns. There were initial precautions that were given to me post surgery about having sex. It advised not to do deep pentration at the first time. I am wondering since I have been so long with out it, does that apply to me now? I don't think it would but I want to be sure. I am kind of scared but it long over due. By the way, I know that I can still have orgasms, which is a plus. Please advise. Thanks,
