Sure its only anal?: If the infection is truly only anal, it won't be spread through vaginal or oral sex, but its possible that an anal infection might go hand in hand w/ a genital infection simultaneously. The safest approach would be to get treated & abstain from sex until 1 week after completing treatment. At that point, condoms are still recommended as well as full std testing if not done already.
