Understanding Anal Health

There tends to be a lack of understanding of anal health care, which can lead to misdiagnoses and stigma. This also usually prevents people from getting the information and care they need to maintain good health.  Anal sex is a common practice amongst Americans, but we must know risks, signs, and symptoms of health issues related to the practice. You may be embarrassed to talk about your anal troubles. But it is important to let your doctor know, especially if you have pain or bleeding. The more details you can give about your problem, the better your doctor will be able to help you. Treatments vary depending on the particular problem. Join us as we host our 2nd annual Anal Health Symposium on April 19th. Topics include harm reduction efforts, latest research, and destigmatizing anal health at the doctor’s office. This is a FREE event; register here today: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/philadelphias-2nd-anal-health-symposium-making-your-bottom-a-top-health-priority-registration-55301978707
