Shigella

Shigella is transmitted if the bacteria in faeces gets into your mouth during sex. Men who have sex with men are particularly at risk. It causes stomach cramps, diarrhoea and a fever.

There has been an outbreak of this little known drug resistant infection in London. So if you are gay, bisexual or a man who has sex with men or HIV+, get checked out for Shigella if you have diarrhoea, stomach cramps and a fever.
