Testing a rectal product to protect against HIV infection during anal sex

UAB is conducting a study to see what kinds of products people would prefer to use before anal sex— a douche, an insert, or a suppository. Participants will be asked to use each product for a period of 1 month and complete surveys about their experience with each one. There is no active drug in any of the products being used. The study lasts about 3 months, and you will complete a total of 8 visits. Physical exams and HIV/STI testing will be provided at no cost. If you complete all study visits, you will be compensated up to $700 for your time.  If you are HIV-negative, age 18-35 and are a man, transgender man or transgender woman, you may be eligible to participate.
