User Profile
About a week ago, I engaged in receptive anal sex with three partners in the same session. A new condom was used with each individual and at no point during the sex were the condoms removed. All of those involved were HIV negative and STD free. I did not experience any pain during the sex nor did I experience any the day after.

I read your question and I understand your concern. No matter how protected you stay in cases where men have sex with men. These are likely conventional symptoms like muscle fatigue and peri anal discomforts secondary to friction and intimacy you went through.

Also you need to avoid coitus for a while and apply some topical hydrocortisone over it. I would suggest avoiding at all as these practices are not safe from medical point of view and have alot of risks.

Consult a sex therapist for further education.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purposes only.

Take care
