Presenting complaints

  • Patients may be reluctant to discuss sexual matters. They may instead complain of physical symptoms, depressed mood or relationship problems. It is important to be aware that patients with sexual problems may have a history of sexual abuse/assault (in childhood or later).
  • Patients may present sexual problems during a routine cervical-smear test, well-woman clinic or when discussing contraception.
