Men who have sex with men (MSM): how much to assume and what to ask? Academic Article uri icon


  • In Australia, about 150,000 men aged 16-59 years identify as gay or bisexual, while a similar number identify as heterosexual but have some history of same-sex sexual contact. Pitts, Couch and Smith advise that the clinical implications for these men include more than sexual health concerns. They suggest several consultation skills that can help doctors to recognise these men and better meet their needs.
