What Causes Anal Injury After Intercourse Is HIV?
Dr, I’m from Malaysia … I’m sorry I want to ask, if something feels uncomfortable at the back (rectum) I feel like there’s a wound after sex. Can it cause HIV? Sex is carried out with condoms

HIV is a sexually transmitted infection that is caused by a virus. This disease is dangerous because it makes the immune system decline so that sufferers become susceptible to any infectious disease. Even minor infectious diseases can occur and can cause death.
Transmission of the HIV virus occurs due to the part of the skin or mucosa that is injured in contact with body fluids (blood, sperm or vaginal fluid) that contain the virus. The following groups are at high risk of becoming infected with this disease, namely:
1. Someone who has sex with multiple sexual partners
2. Having sex with CSWs
3. Using alternating syringes
4. Laboratory workers
One way to prevent the transmission of this disease is to use a condom safety when engaging in risky sexual intercourse. However, it cannot be denied, there is a possibility of a condom leaking so that sperm fluid can still be in contact with the skin or mucosa of the anus, vagina or mouth. This condition has the same risk as not using a condom.
You should consult with the VCT clinic at the nearest hospital. If needed, you will be screened for screening for HIV infection.
Thus hopefully useful.
