2. Sex Isn't Just…sex
In other words, it's not just vaginal intercourse — sexual activity includes just about any kind of intimate contact. "That could be kissing on the lips; touching intimate parts of the body with the hands, mouth, or penis; or vaginal or anal penetration," says Sarah Yamaguchi, MD, an OB/GYN at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. So when your doctor asks about your sexual history, any of the above is fair game. And it's important to be honest, so she can tell you how to stay healthy and protect yourself.
