STDs 101

Being educated about sexually transmitted diseases is the first step in avoiding getting one!

The second step is using a condom every time you have sex (or else not ever having sex!)

Below are the most common Sexually Transmitted Infections that are found in the United States. Wearing a condom when you have sex will significantly reduce your risk of getting most of them.

HIV/AIDS

HIV is the virus that causes AIDS and is spread when an HIV positive person’s infected cum, pre-cum or blood gets into another person’s blood stream–that usually happen when infected cum, pre-cum or blood gets in someone’s ass.

Most cases of HIV are caused when an infected person has unprotected anal sex (barebacking) with an uninfected person. Rarely HIV can be passed through unprotected oral sex, if the person giving head has cuts or sores in their mouth or bleeding gums.

Using a condom correctly can prevent the spread of HIV by keeping infected cum, pre-cum and blood, out of your body–and if you enjoy f*cking, it’s a essential tool to protect yourself.

HIV can be treated with medications, but without medications, in most cases it will progress to AIDS and eventually kill the infected person.

If you find out within 72 hours that you have had unprotected sex with someone who is HIV positive, visit your local clinic to find out if you should take medicine that might prevent you from getting HIV.

CDC Recommendations on Post Exposure Prophylaxis:

“The most effective means of preventing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is preventing exposure. The provision of antiretroviral drugs to prevent HIV infection after unanticipated sexual or injection-drug–use exposure might be beneficial. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Working Group on Nonoccupational Postexposure Prophylaxis (nPEP) made the following recommendations for the United States. For persons seeking care72 hours after exposure, DHHS does not recommend the use of nPEP. Clinicians might consider prescribing nPEP for exposures conferring a serious risk for transmission, even if the person seeks care >72 hours after exposure if, in their judgment, the diminished potential benefit of nPEP outweighs the risks for transmission and adverse events. For all exposures, other health risks resulting from the exposure should be considered and prophylaxis administered when indicated. Risk-reduction counseling and indicated intervention services should be provided to reduce the risk for recurrent exposures.”

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is a bacteria that infects the penis, anus and throat. You get it from f*cking or sucking without a condom. It is spread through infected secretions from the penis, anus and back of the throat. The bacteria CAN’T pass through a latex condom.

This bacteria can make it itch, burn or tickle when you pee and cause white, yellow or green pus or clear sticky discharge to come out of your pee hole (urethra). If you get it in your throat it can cause a sore throat. If you get it in your anus it can cause itching, burning and pus. Some people don’t get any symptoms, but are still infected and can pass it on. If you get the infected pus in your eyes, it can cause a serious infection. Rarely, it can spread throughout the body and cause serious illness.

Gonorrhea can usually be cured with the antibiotic ceftriaxone, which comes as a shot. A couple of the drugs we used to use to treat Gonorrhea no longer work, and that may happen with the one that we use now–so it’s better not to get it in the first place. It’s actually pretty easy to prevent if you use a condom when you f*ck or suck.

Some people don’t get any symptoms, but are still infected and can pass it on. If you get the infected pus in your eyes, it can cause a serious infection.

Chlamydia can be cured with the antibiotics azithromycin or doxycycline. It can be prevented by using a condom whenever you f*ck or suck.

Syphilis

Syphilis is a bacteria that can infect the penis, anus and mouth as well as internal organs. It can cause painless sores at the point of infection (in the mouth, on your dick, around or in your anus). Later it can cause an all over body rash including the palms and soles of feet that does NOT itch. In late stages it can attack the brain and heart. Condoms can prevent infection if they are covering the infected part. If someone has syphilis on their dick and and you blow them with out a condom, you can get syphilis in your mouth without even knowing it. When detected in time, Syphilis can be cured with the antibiotics penicillin or doxycycline.

Herpes

Herpes is an annoying virus that can infect the penis, anus and mouth and cause small sores that itch, burn and are painful. These sores will usually heal up within 3 weeks or so, but may continue to come back in the same spot several times a year for many years. While herpes can be painful and embarrassing, it only rarely causes serious problems. Herpes cannot be cured, but outbreaks can be treated and sometimes controlled with the anti-viral medicine acyclovir.

HPV and Genital Warts

Human Papilloma Virus causes genital warts and can infect the skin of the penis, anus and mouth as well as the surrounding skin. Up to 65% of HIV negative gay men may have HPV and 95% of HIV + men have it. Certain types of HPV can cause cancer of the anus and mouth, but most types just cause warts. If you have anal warts, it is recommended that you have an anal pap smear test at least every three years to check for signs of cancer, or more frequently if you are HIV+. There are several methods of removing warts from the skin, all of which should be done by a medical professional. Most people with HPV and normal immune systems will eventually clear the virus, but some will have a lifetime problem with warts. It is likely that condoms prevent the spread of HPV, but only on the area that is covered. There may be a vaccine approved soon to help prevent HPV infection in men. Until then, condoms are your only protection.

Hepatitis A and B

Hepatitis is caused by viruses that damage the liver. Hepatitis A is spread by rimming, and rarely oral sex. Hepatitis B is spread by unprotected sex. The good news is there is a safe and effective vaccine for both of these diseases, so there’s no reason to get infected. Get Vaccinated! Scabies
