S ex ual ly Transmitted Diseases (STDs) have been rising among gay and bi s e x u al men, with increases in syphilis being seen across the country. In 2014, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men accounted for 83% of primary and secondary syphilis cases where sex of sex partner was known in the United States. G a y, b is e x u a l, and other men who have s e x with men often get other STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea infections. HPV (Human papillomavirus), the most common STD in the United States, is also a concern for g a y, b is e x ua l, and other men who have s e x with men. Some types of HPV can cause genital and anal warts and some can lead to the development of anal and oral c an ce rs. G a y, bi s ex u al, and other men who have s e x with men are 17 times more likely to get anal cancer than heteros e xu al men. Men who are HIV-positive are even more likely than those who do not have HIV to get anal cancer.
