Anal sex is not what every couple indulges in. But many do and love it. And there are several others who keep on fantasizing about it. There is a lot of curiosity about anal sex and its side effect is not just pain! According to several studies and doctors; anal sex can cause a lot of health complications.
#1 Greater Chances of HIV
Anal sex will definitely not make you pregnant but in the absence of condom over the shaft, you might get exposed to all kind of STDs including AIDS. In fact, receptive partners face 30 times more risk to get HIV from anal in comparison to vaginal sex. Make sure to use a condom to enjoy the tighter experience.
#2 Anal Tearing
The anus is incapable to make things greasy on its own. It requires a lot of water-based lube to make things slippery, painless and to avoid anal tearing. However, anal tearing heals with time but can be prone to viral infection. So, it is better to use an appropriate amount of lubes before pushing it.
#3 Can Get Shitty
Afterall, its where we poop from. There is no reason to get shocked if you get strains of poop while doing anal sex. While it is a possibility, but if you are too worried about it then it is better for the receiving partner to take an enema before doing anal sex to keep things more in control.
#4 Fecal Incontinence
According to research, people having anal sex might suffer from fecal incontinence in the long run. The condition can be caused by muscle and nerve damage around the rectum.
#5 Anal Cancer
As per the American Cancer Society, a majority of the anal cancers are caused due to HPV. HPV contracted through anus can also cause anal warts.
