Anal STI Test

If you have had unprotected sex recently and developed symptoms consistent with an STI,  you should consider testing yourself. But did you know that certain STIs can specifically infect the mouth and anus? If you have had recent sexual contact in these areas, consider a specific test for oral or anal infections.

Gonorrhea infections of the anus

Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection that can lead to inflammation of the anus and rectum. It is primarily spread by unprotected anal intercourse, but can also be spread from other infected regions of the body. The presence of pus in the stool and pain during defecation are possible symptoms of anal gonorrhoea. With Homed-IQ’s Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea Test you can test yourself for both chlamydia and gonorrhoea.

Gonorrhoea in the throat

Gonorrhoea can also infect the throat. Up to 30 percent of people with a genital gonorrhoea infection also have gonorrhoea in their throat. It is also possible to test negative for gonorrhoea in the anus, vagina, or penis, but still have a gonorrhoea infection in your throat.

One of the ways gonorrhoea is transmitted is through unprotected oral sex. Most people have little to no symptoms when infected, although gonorrhoea usually more symptoms than chlamydia and is more contagious. Therefore, the absence of symptoms does not mean that you do not have gonorrhoea or that you are not contagious.
