Questions - Sarah, revisit 1

  • Would you ask a straight patient when they knew they were straight ?

  • The questions about Sarah’s sexuality are asked in a way that is curious but not clinically relevant in this scenario. Will the answers to these questions help you to think about the etiology of the vaginal discharge ?

  • Who are they serving ?

  • It may be important to explore a full sexual history and explore her feelings about her sexuality in the future, but these questions are not helpful in thinking about the vaginal discharge.
