Biopsies and anal sex
Biopsies are just one of the tests that are done to find out if you have prostate cancer. The others are covered in more detail elsewhere. Biopsies are small samples that are taken from inside the body, which are then analysed. Special mention is made here because, if you are a man who has sex with men, you need to be aware of the effect that biopsies can have on your ability to have sex, particularly if you are the "bottom" / "passive" / "receptive partner".
Most of the information that is available tells you to wait a week before having sex after you've had biopsies. This might not be enough time for you to heal up completely inside. Therefore, if you are a man who has sex with men and are the "bottom" / "passive" / "receptive partner" you might need to wait longer. Some health professionals advise 6 weeks. At the time of writing, we do not know of any definitive advice.
