Sexual History

​Sexual History

​In order to address the sexual and reproductive health care needs of adolescents (both male and female), it is important to collect a comprehensive sexual history from each patient. The Bright Futures Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents, 4th Edition, offers questions to ask and the screenings to complete.  

There is further guidance via AAP policy on how to provide comprehensive sexual health care that is currently in development. Anticipated publication of this new report is expected in late 2017. 

In addition, the Physicians for Reproductive Health Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health Education Project has a PowerPoint presentation on how to conduct a sexual history​.
