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.
