LGV

LGV is an aggressive strain of chlamydia that occurs primarily in gay men with HIV.
After 10 to 30 days (and sometimes even longer) the lymph nodes in the groin area can swell up and rupture. You might have painful lumpy blisters in the final section of your intestinal tract, constipation and traces of blood in your bowel movements, and an inflamed urethra or penis. A person with LGV will sometimes have a fever and will often feel generally bad. LGV can be treated by means of antibiotics taken over a course of three weeks. LGV is easily passed on through unprotected anal sexual contact, fisting and the sharing of sex toys (dildos) without first having disinfected them. The blisters from LGV make it easier for you get and pass on HIV and other STIs.
