We recently visited one public clinic in Midrand and we came across what we did not always think of and thought sharing it with you might just be appropriate:
Have you had Sex in the last 6 months?
if the answer is YES:
- ORAL SEX? > RECEPTIVE/BOTH = CONSIDER POSSIBLE PHARYNGEAL STI = GO FOR ORAL EXAMINATION.
- ORAL SEX? > INSERTIVE = CONSIDER POSSIBLE PENILE/GENITAL STI = GO FOR PENILE & SCROTAL EXAMINATION.
RECEPTIVE/BOTH > GO FOR ANAL/VIRGINAL EXAMINATION.
INSERTIVE > GO FOR PENILE & SCROTAL EXAMINATION.
Best thing to do is:
- Should you be sexually active, ALWAYS insist on using a condom.
- or you can abstain.
- Test Regularly.
- Stick to one sexual partner at a time… should you have more than one, disclose with all your prospect partners so that they can make informed decisions should they wish to indulge you.
We hope this bit of info help you or someone you know. Remember to go for annual check-ups.
