    I mean when u have normal sex, you might get pregnant so you use a condom but do i need a condom for Anal sex as well? Can I get pregnant from Anal sex.


    Unless you and your partner are in a committed monogamous relationship and have both been tested recently, you should use condoms during anal sex to reduce to risk of sexually transmitted infections and HIV, Dr. Chinn says. Yup, you can get STIs in your butt.
    Using a new condom is especially important if you’re switching from anal to vaginal penetration so you can avoid moving bacteria from your anus to your vagina or urethra. Your anus is home to all kinds of bacteria your vagina and related parts aren’t used to—namely, gastrointestinal (GI) bacteria, like E. coli. When this bacteria reaches your vagina, it can cause vaginal infections, like bacterial vaginosis, which can lead to vaginal itching, burning during urination, a “fishy” vaginal odor, and gray, white, or green vaginal discharge, according to the Mayo Clinic. It can also spread to your urethra, where it can cause a urinary tract infection. According to the Mayo Clinic, this can cause symptoms like constantly needing to pee, then a burning sensation when you do, along with cloudy urine and pelvic pain.
    Long story short? If you insert anything into your anus, clean it off and/or roll on a new condom before putting it into your vagina.

    Worth noting: Even if you and your partner aren’t worried about STIs or HIV, using a condom may make you feel more comfortable if…mess…is a concern.


    The problem with this is that, with normal sex there isn’t a great risk of catching STDs while in Anal sex the potential for that is huge. The risk is so huge that i don’t think Anal sex should be done without protection unless you want HIV aids. Be careful!


    Absolutely. If your partner is a woman and is not on hormonal birth contro or does not have an IUD anal sex is not free of pregnancy risks. Essentially, if after the intercourse the semen splashes onto the vulva (and that is pretty easy due to the shape of our body) a pregnancy can start.

    Even if you are having sex with a man, or if your partner is using another reliable birth control method (or you are trying to conceive), the anus is rich in bacteria that may cause you a nasty infection. These are not necessarily the traditional sexually transmitted diseases: we are talking about urinary tract infections, prostatitis etc.


    you can use condom as Condom use can effectively reduce the risk of HIV / AIDS, gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis, and it provides some protection against genetic issues and herpes. There are male and female condoms, and they can be made of latex rubber, polyurethane or lambskin. Male condoms are more commonly used.
