Common sexually transmitted bacterial organisms may affect the anorectum and perianal skin. While some of these infections are a result of contiguous spread from genital infection, most result from receptive anal intercourse. Polymicrobial infection is common and there is overlap in symptoms caused by the organisms that may infect the anorectum. This article addresses the most common bacterial organisms that are sexually transmitted and affect the anorectum. It includes discussions of gonorrhea, campylobacter, chlamydia, shigella, chancroid, granuloma inguinale, and syphilis. Incidence, mode of transmission, presenting signs and symptoms, diagnostic modalities, and treatment are reviewed. There are over 15 million cases of sexually transmitted diseases STDs annually in the United States and the etiologic agents for these infections exceed 25 in number. Organisms that typically cause genital and perineal infection result in similar symptoms when the distal anal canal, anoderm, and perianal skin are the site of infection. While most anorectal STDs are acquired via anal receptive intercourse, contiguous spread from genital infection occurs. Certain organisms, more commonly thought of as water- or food-borne diseases, are included with other STDs because they are spread by direct or indirect fecal-oral contact from various sexual practices.
How STIs are transmitted
There are a lot of anal sex risks. Numerous STDs are easily spread by anal sex. That's why it's important to tell your doctor if you're having anal sex so you can be tested accordingly. Not all STD tests work in the same way. Some tests, like the ones for HIV , test your blood for signs that your body has been exposed to the virus. If you wait long enough after infection for your body to have time to develop a response to the infection, a test like this will detect a disease no matter how you have been exposed. In contrast, the most common tests for gonorrhea , chlamydia , and many other STDs look for the pathogen that causes the disease rather than your body's response to it.

The risk of getting HIV varies widely depending on the type of sexual activity. Anal sex intercourse , which involves inserting the penis into the anus, carries the highest risk of transmitting HIV if either partner is HIV-positive. Anal sex is the highest-risk sexual behavior for HIV transmission. Vaginal sex has a lower risk, and activities like oral sex, touching, and kissing carry little to no risk for getting or transmitting HIV. The vast majority of men who get HIV get it through anal sex. However, anal sex is also one of the ways women can get HIV. During anal sex, the partner inserting the penis is called the insertive partner or top , and the partner receiving the penis is called the receptive partner or bottom.
