01/7Why anal sex is extremely dangerous!
WHY ANAL SEX IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS: Despite the fact that anal sex is illegal in India, a growing population is trying it the backdoor way. Call it curiosity to try new things or the recklessness of sexual repertoire, one can’t deny that anal sex is not only unnatural but so, it also caries multiple risks with it. To throw light on the subject, we talked to gynaecologists who have listed the following six major risks associated with anal sex.
02/7The risk of tears
THE RISK OF TEARS: Because anus, unlike vagina, is not meant for intercourse, it is not elastic in nature to accommodate a penis. Also, it is meant for one way passage and not the other way around. So, when you indulge in anal sex, your rectal tissue in the anal passage is meant to suffer tears.
03/7Tears translate into STIs
TEARS TRANSLATE INTO STIs: When there are tears in your rectal cavity, the odds of contracting STDs are very high. These include diseases such as rectal gonorrhoea, HIV and chlamydia. Anal activity can also transmit Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
04/7HPV is very dangerous!
HPV IS VERY DANGEROUS: There are over 40 strains of HPV, some low-risk and some high-risk. If the person you are having sex with has strains of HPV, the chances of which are very high as about half heterosexual men may have it, it can lead to various infections. HPV can cause anal warts and even cancer of the anus.
05/7Screening of these STDs difficult
SCREENING OF THESE STDs DIFFICULT: For anally transmitted sexual infections, the screening is more difficult because the usual check-up does not include that. You need to specifically inform the doctor about being active in anal sex to request the tests.
FAECAL INCONTINENCE: A study conducted by Northwestern University found that women who had anal sex as a part of their bedroom activity regularly were more likely to have anal sex changed the consistency of their stools. Anal sex can cause faecal as well as urinary incontinence.
