Hi,

 

As such anal sex may result in anal fissure.

Anal fissure is a tear in the mucosa of the anus.

This is very painful condition.

 

The lining of the anus is more delicate and produces less natural lubricant so chances of anal fissure are more likely.

If the anus or rectum does get torn, it does not heal as quickly. Because feces that pass through the rectum contain bacteria, any tear in the lining is at risk of getting infected. Lining tears may lead to other problems such as an anal abscess.

 

Rare complications may include fistula in ano.

 

As far as HIV is concerned if there is no history of sharing sex toys HIV and other STD are not likely possibility.


HIV transmission required exchange of body fluids.
