Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. You are right, you can't catch HIV from someone who doesn't have it, however, if you have HPV or any other STD/STI it can be spread that way. Have you and your partner been tested?
It's natural to be curious about anal sex. If you decide to try it again, you may want to use a bit of lubricant to make it go easier and/or a condom. And never go from anal sex to vaginal sex. Make sure he washes afterward too, and not because of any potential virus, but because of bacteria that could be present. It's not for everyone, but if you decide to try again, hope the tips help.
If I didn't completely answer your question, let us know, and we'll try and better help you.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
