    "For a more complete picture of your patient's health, the following guide offers parameters for discussion of sexual health issues. A sexual history needs to be taken during a patient's initial visit, during routine preventive exams, and when you see signs of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The dialogue lends itself to the opportunity for risk-reduction counseling and sharing information about behaviors that may place your patient at risk of contracting STDs. A sexual history allows you to identify those individuals at risk for syphilis and other STDs, including HIV, and to identify appropriate anatomical sites for certain STD tests."
