People who haven’t had the HPV vaccine should be on the lookout for persistent symptoms in the anus that aren’t due to other medical issues like hemorrhoids or a herpes outbreak. “If you’re having pain or bleeding, or a bump that’s otherwise unexplained then you should seek immediate medical attention,” explains Palefsky.

If HIV is going to get inside the cells, it does so quickly; it takes about 30 minutes. However, it does not start to multiply for several hours. PrEP and PEP work by stopping this process. Without drug, HIV infection is established within a few days so it’s a big advantage to have drug in the tissues BEFORE a risk, but it is needed most in the few days AFTER the risk.
“We’ve already seen the start of a potential explosion in syphilis and gonorrhoea in men who have sex with men, and it’s only a matter of time before the enthusiastic use of dating apps and antibiotic-resistant gonorrhoea starts to have an effect on the heterosexual population,” he told The Guardian.
Interview with Professor Roy Chan, former Director of the National Skin Centre and Founding President of Action for AIDS (Singapore).

Study after study shows gay guys under 25 are not hearing, or worse not heeding, campaigns to protect their sexual health. As they discover and explore their sexuality, they are statistically at the highest risk for HIV of anyone in the U.S. While researchers work on innovative ways to reach younger guys, even already positive younger guys are less likely to have the virus in check when they get it, and more likely to go bareback.
Think you know all the Sexually Transmitted Infections(STIs)? How does it spread ? The symptoms? The stages for infections? The treatments and some even have vaccination to prevent you from getting them?
gayhealth.sg partnered with DSC Clinic on November 27, 2014 for our MSM volunteers and their friends. The workshop was very informative for the participants and many left with a different view of how easily the infections can be transmitted. The feedbacks were positives and some even shared on Facebook about what they had learnt.
“Attended a fruitful session on STDs. It’s very interesting to have a Doctor speaker and explain in more details on STD. Two types mainly, the viruses like herpes 2 and warts which will stay in our body even when symptoms are gone and bacteria type which covers the rest which can be cured. But that doesn’t mean it won’t come back, if u have even a deep kissing of mouth to mouth, you will still get syphilis! So get a regular partner(s) and reduce the risk. Even precum has viruses… Argh.. And your listerene doesn’t blast your mouth super clean after either. Know your risk, play your part.” – R.E
