Week 40-Is it bad if you get semen in your eyes?

May 29, 2009




It is not ideal.

When it happens, it burns because there is salt, ascorbic acid, citric acid, and other substances in semen.  Flush your eye with lukewarm water if this happens.



An eye has much in common with a penis and vagina, as it is also a mucus membrane. Ok.  Maybe not much, but it is still a mucus membrane. It is a site where infections including HIV and STIs can enter the body.  The eye is not the ideal site for STIs and HIV, so the chances of contracting them is much less than through vaginal, oral or anal sex – but it can happen.


If you are worried you contracted an STI through a “shot” in the eye, contact your medical provider … come to Planned Parenthood for testing.




The best thing to do is duck, so you don’t get fertil-EYE-zed.

(Sorry about the bad pun.  Low hanging fruit is hard to resist.)

Planned Parenthood of northern New England’s Education Department carefully selects all weekly questions. All questions are actual inquiries made to PPNNE by college-aged students.

Should you have a question you would like to see included, please send an email to goddess@ppnne.org
