Will anal sex cause appendicitis or can it be one of the causes of anal sex. Tghis may soundfunny but I am dead serious.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your question as written is two questions:

1. Will anal sex cause appendicitis?

2. Will appendicitis cause anal sex?

Yep, although you may indeed be dead serious, this indeed does "soundfunny"!

The answer to both is no.

So for #1, you can now go ahead with your Saturday night plans without having to worry about winding up on the surgeon's table come Monday morning for an appendectomy.

And as for #2, if you're looking for backdoor action, you'll just have to try something else.
