Hey Pups! Just wanted to share a quick video on sexual health for human pups.
The video above is part of a presentation on human pup play at CLAW 2016.
Today I wanted to highlight the importance of getting a regular sexual health check and what you should expect when you get one.
If you are sexually active you should get an STI check every 12 months. If you've had more than 10 sexual partners in less than 6 months then every six months and 3 monthly if you are having plenty of sex.
If you get any symptoms of sexual infections such as:
- burning or stinging with urination
- pus or discharge when you urinate
- rashes, sores, lumps or bumps on your genitals, ass or around your mouth
then see your doctor or sexual health clinic as soon as you can.
What To Expect In A STI Check
A properly done STI screening includes:
- A throat swab for gonorrhoea and chlamydia
- An ass swab for gonorrhoea and chlamydia
- A urine test for gonorrhoea and chlamydia
- A blood test for HIV, syphilis and to check your Hepatitis A, B & C status
Female and F2M trans pups should also consider a pap test on a regular basis.
As part of all sexual health human pups should consider vaccination for tetanus, hepatitis A and B as well as HPV (human papilloma virus) if you are under the age of 35.
If you worry you could be a risk for HIV be sure to talk with your doctor about PrEP or pre-exposure prophylaxis, a daily tablet that can help reduce the chance of HIV infection by 90% or even more.
Look after your sexual health pups!
