stomach cramps, yellow loose stool after anal sex
jwc1980 posted:
hello im a 32 year old gay male, very healthy, excerise, eat very well. Friday night (4days ago) i had anal sex, I was the bottom. It was my first time being a bottom. It was protected. the person I was with also had oral sex and oral to anal sex both ways. On saturday I woke up with bad stomach cramps and loose bright yellow bowels, sometimes with muscus in it. It is now tuesday and my stomach cramps have not gone away, today seems to be the worst, and the loose yellow stools are continuing. what could this be?.

I'm in the same exact boat as you! Same yellow diarrhea after being a bottom. My guess is that this is from fat malabsorption, and this is very common with giardia, a curable stomach parasite.

Now you did I get giardia? Did know...put your tongue where the sun doesn't shine? Well, that's what I did.

What we probably did was ingested fecal matter, the s**t (literally) that's causing all of this havoc in our lives.

Again, I don't know if this is what we have, but when you look at the symptoms of this parasite, it fits the description of what we're going through.

Have you ever got tested recently...or did you already figure out what this is? Please do tell!
