Bacterial Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Proctitis - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic

Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland. This problem can be caused by an infection with bacteria. However, this is not a common cause. Ongoing irritation of the prostate that is not caused by bacteria is called chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. Any bacteria that can cause a urinary tract infection can cause acute bacterial prostatitis. Infections spread through sexual contact can cause prostatitis.

Rectal Problems

Proctitis is inflammation of the lining of the rectum. The rectum is a muscular tube that's connected to the end of your colon. Stool passes through the rectum on its way out of the body. Proctitis can cause rectal pain, diarrhea, bleeding and discharge, as well as the continuous feeling that you need to have a bowel movement. Proctitis symptoms can be short-lived, or they can become chronic.
Back to Sexual health. Penetrative anal sex has a higher risk of spreading STIs than many other types of sexual activity. This is because the lining of the anus is thin and can be easily damaged, which makes it more vulnerable to infection. Use a water-based lubricant, which is available from pharmacies. Oil-based lubricants such as lotion and moisturiser can cause latex condoms to break or fail.
