Re: Colitis & Anal Sex
Yes, anal sex that has transmitted something to cause inflammation can cause proctitis (colitis of the rectum) -- that would include an STD, virus, bacteria, parasite...etc.
Colitis is inflammation.....not an irritation as above stated. Ulcerative colitis is a specific disease. It's still a colitis.
If one has colitis....an inflammation of the colon or rectum....unless properly treated it will always be a problem if one tends to continue to inflame the area (eg...anal sex).
Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a chronic disease that has no cure. Medications are required to treat flares and possibly maintain a remission state.
It could also be possible that one would already have had UC and not recognise symptoms....have anal sex.....symptoms will become apparent....assume it's caused by anal sex.
Colitis is a very loose term used for UC....it's not specific enough in my mind.
THNew13.....are you meaning Ulcerative Colitis....or just colitis in a generic sense? Clarity would help.
It's all a matter of perspective!
