Start of by saying "I would like to discuss your sexual health"
Then ask "are you sexually active? If so are your partners male, female, or both?"
Usually the sp will say (if married) "yes ONLY if with my husband/wife"
If not married then you have to ask about how many partners and if the patient practices "safe sex". If they say yes to safe sex then ask them what type of methods they use. Then ask then when their last STD/HIV test was. You can then counsel at this point about stds and HIV.

Depends on the c/o, if your suspecting something like rt knee pain or any discharge then ask further. But for something else like feeling tired or chest pains I wouldn't waste anytime.

if you think the sp is lieing then say
anything we discuss is in complete confidence
or amybe he may be scared to tell you the truth if you have time try to do more investigations like how is your relationship with your wife and or how long has your relations only been with you wife but you must be delicate about it so as not to anger the sp
good luck
