I understand other threads may have touched on aspects of this; but would like to start one which pulls these together.
I've been an occasional punter for about eight and a half years but would like to become more active.
When I've been for routine GUM exams in the past I've been handed a 'Pre-HIV Test Questionnaire'. This asked things like whether I take drugs/sleep with other men etc; but also whether I was a punter. It was quite clear that a 'Yes' to any of the questions would result in a referal to a counsellor. To be honest, I took the line mentioned in several threads, ie. tell them what I'd done not with whom.
On one occasion, everyone was screened by the counsellor regardless, who asked for recent sexual history. Mentioned a couple of BJ's without RO. Was then asked if this was with WG's? Again, answered indirectly or a "need to know" basis.
Apart from the title question, what I would like to know is when I go for another exam there or elsewhere, if I answer "yes" to punting will this result in:
- HBV and/or HPV vaccines, (which is what I would like)
- Lecture or worse
