Sexual History

Sexually transmitted infections are a common cause of epididymo-orchitis. Eliciting a sexual history can help guide treatment by revealing risk factors such as: previous sexually transmitted infection, urethral discharge, number of sexual partners in the past 12 months, men who have sex with men. Men who perform penetrative anal intercourse are also at risk of infection with enteric organisms due to exposure to gastrointestinal flora(7)
