Researchers report few changes in risky sexual behaviors among men with HIV who take medication for erectile dysfunction (ED).
In a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study, the research team studied rates of testing and diagnosis for three sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) - chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis - in a group of 2,924 HIV-infected men in the southeastern United States.
They found that screening rates for chlamydia and gonorrhea were low, but syphilis testing was steadier. Few sexually-active men used condoms consistently. Sex after drug or alcohol use was fairly common.
