I don't think I've ever in my life taken a cold seriously. Sure, I stock up on meds and snacks while I hibernate under the covers, but my healthcare regimen usually stops there. Is that a thing? Unfortunately, yes.
9 Sicknesses Triggered by Sex
How soon do STI symptoms appear? - NHS
If you have sex — oral, anal or vaginal intercourse and genital touching — you can get an STD, also called a sexually transmitted infection STI. Thinking or hoping your partner doesn't have an STI is no protection — you need to know for sure. And although condoms, when properly used, are highly effective for reducing transmission of some STDs, no method is foolproof. STI symptoms aren't always obvious. Some STIs are easy to treat and cure; others require more-complicated treatment to manage them.
Symptoms of HIV
Post-orgasmic illness syndrome POIS is a rare condition that gives men flu-like symptoms immediately after they ejaculate. Given its rarity, experts suspect the condition is severely underreported and could be more prevalent than previously assumed. However, experts suspect that a semen allergy to a particular protein could be to blame. This would subsequently generate an autoimmune response in the body, which could explain the allergy-like symptoms that some patients experience. According to a study published in the journal Translational Andrology and Urology , there are two types of POIS: a primary type which manifests itself in pubescent males and a secondary type that begins later on in life.
Many HIV-positive people experience fever, fatigue, night sweats, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat or rash in the first few weeks after being infected. Consequently, any flu-like symptoms occurring after unprotected sex with someone of unknown HIV status have to be investigated immediately. The current wave of the campaign follows on from the autumn campaign. TV commercials, online banners and brief films on eBoards at major train stations and at the baggage carousels of Zurich and Geneva airports communicate the main message that anyone who experiences flu-like symptoms after unprotected sex should see a doctor immediately. The eBoards at the airports are aimed at raising awareness of the issue among the the important target group of international travellers: many HIV infections occur abroad, and the majority of people thus infected are men.
