I’m filling out forms for an upcoming medical test, and there are all sorts of fun questions to answer. But the one that has me stumped is “are you sexually active?”
So I sit there, pondering, saying to myself, “well, not this week, or this month, but who knows what may happen in a few weeks”.
I have no idea how to answer. How many days/weeks/months of celibacy or a slow period qualify you for being not active anymore? From a doctor’s standpoint, I mean. It’s a yes or no question, but it has me so baffled I can’t finish the questionaire. It’s connected to a question about what birth control you’re using. Now I know a lot of married people who could be considered “not sexually active”, but they at least have the potential, having a living, breathing person in the bed with them. Can you not be currently seeing anyone and consider yourself “active”?
So how should I best answer this question, from a medical point of view?
