This project introduces a methodology to change how providers ask the 5 P's of a sexual history using gender-affirming language. Obtaining a gender-affirming sexual history will improve sexual health care, especially with gender nonconforming and transgender patients. Taking time to discuss sexual health and function can lead to prompt identification of sexual problems, risk-taking behaviors, and infection prevention. Using appropriate language to communicate with all patients can lead to better doctor-patient relationship.
