Wrap It Up, Boys: Chlamydia is Coming and It’s Pissed as Hell

If you’ve read my site more than once you’ve seen any number of my safe sex rants, so I’ll try not be redundant here.  According to the THT, a particularly nasty form of Chlamydia is making the rounds in the UK.  This isn’t your normal “get some meds and you’ll be fine” bug either.  The worst case scenario can leave permanent damage and even require surgery.

From Pink Paper:

HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust is warning the gay community of an aggressive form of chlamydia that’s becoming increasingly widespread, this month.

According to the organisation, LGV (lymphogranuloma venereum) is a “serious sexually transmitted infection that attacks the lymph nodes”. It has been spreading among gay and bisexual men since arriving in the UK around 2004. In 2009, 193 men were diagnosed with the infection and, in the first six months of 2010 alone, 190 men have been diagnosed, many of whom also have HIV.

The majority of men infected with LGV develop symptoms within a few weeks, and nearly all have been infected rectally. Symptoms can include bleeding and discharge from the rectum, painful inflammation (called ‘proctitis’), and painful anal abscesses or ulcers.

Left untreated, LGV can cause lasting damage. The inside of the rectum can become so seriously affected it might require surgery.

Said it before and it bears repeating: the cost of a pack of condoms at Walgreens is twelve bucks – and that’s if you can’t find them free.

Wow: I didn’t rant in this story did I?  Hmmm…how ‘bout that?
