Does saliva kill sperm. I am trying to conceive. Does having oral sex prevent pregnancy?

No it doesn't.
Dear lybrate-user, Its a myth that saliva kills sperms. Oral sex may not prevent you from conceiving but when you are trying for conception, then try to have vaginal intercourse as much as possible rather than oral as quantity of semen goes down with every ejaculation and that may lead to difficulty in conception.
