  • a The denominator represents the total number of subjects who were asked to respond to this survey item.

  • b P value represents the comparison between sexually experienced and sexually inexperienced participants; a χ2 or Fisher’s Exact test was used to compare proportions and a Wilcoxon or t test to compare means.

  • c N/A, not applicable.

  • d Number of sexual partners for the past 3 mo was assessed at baseline, number of sexual partners between 0 and 2 mo was assessed at the 2-mo visit (ie, between the baseline and the 2-mo visits), and number of sexual partners between 2 and 6 mo was assessed at the 6-mo visit (ie, between the 2-mo and the 6-mo visits). In this way, we were able to assess the number of partners from 3 mo before enrollment until 6 mo after enrollment.
