ANAL PAIN AND BLEEDING
Blowjobs can put you at risk for STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis of the penis (as the one who had the penis in the partnerís mouth) and STDs of the throat (as the one who sucked the penis). Blowjobs cannot cause anal infections, however. STDs generally occur at the site or organ where physical contact with another personís mouth, genitals or anus happened. They donít spread throughout the body and appear at another site. (Syphilis can, but thatís a complex disease.) Just because you donít see any unusual signs on your body, doesnít mean you couldnít be infected. Most STDs show no symptoms or only some symptoms. Regardless, it sounds like itís time for a check up.
For more information on STD testing, visit City Clinic for information about testing in San Francisco or visit InSpot.org and look for your city or State. If not there, try HIVtest.org or call the CDC National Hotline for places near you: 1-800-CDC-INFO.
