Is There A Safe Way To Have Anal Sex Without A Condom?

Hello, I have a question. I will be getting married soon, and my future wife and I are discussing varying sex options. We were wondering about anal sex. Is there a safe way to have anal sex without a condom. She will be on birth control, so thats not a worry, and both of us dont have STD/STI s due to us being abstinate up until we are married. So I m more concerned about getting a UTI, or could I just pee the E. Coli out afterwards if any got in there, what do you think?

Hello,

It is true that anal sex has a higher risk of spreading STIs (like chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, HIV or syphilis)than many other types of sexual activity. This is because the lining of the anus is thin and can be easily damaged, which makes it more vulnerable to infection. Other infections caused by bacteria or viruses such as hepatitis A or E.coli, can be passed on through oral-anal sex. For this reason using condoms(PROPERLY) are important to make anal sex safer.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Elona Xhardo, Endocrinologist
