Gay Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Gay sexually transmitted diseases are those that are acquired and spread through sexual activity between men. That is, men, having sex with men (MSM). It is the bacteria, viruses, or parasites spread during anal and oral sex that causes them.

A 2017 study by CDC indicates 52%-58% of syphilis infections in US to be among MSM. And more than half of MSM who had primary and secondary syphilis also had HIV, and the other half at high risk of developing HIV in the future. 

Some of the most common gay sexually transmitted diseases and infections (STDs and STIs) are syphilis, HIV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, genital herpes, and genital warts (via Human Papilloma Virus/ HPV). 

According to National Health Survey, MSM are also at risk of non-gonococcal urethritis (NSU), shigella, pubic lice, and scabies. 

Gay sexually transmitted diseases spread through both anal and oral sex with an infected person. The infections are usually present in the genitals, anus, rectum, or mouth. Any sexual activity that involves skin-to-skin contact in these areas causes STDs. 

Contact with infected bodily fluid, including semen, blood, saliva, or warts and sores, cause STDs among MSM.

Hepatitis A and shigella result through the intake of fecal matter during oral sex after anal sex. Hepatitis A infects the liver while shigella, the intestines.

Gay sexually transmitted diseases can be prevented through several measures. The first would be to get tested before committing to any sexual relations. Uusing protection, and maintain general hygiene are also very important.

If already infected, do not worry. There are effective treatments for many STDs. Just make sure you visit an STD clinic at the earliest and receive the proper treatment.

To conclude, take preventive measures at the earliest and spread awareness.
