**Literal question**

In total, with how many different men have you had sex in the last 12 months?

**Interviewer instructions**

This is the total number of different partners the respondent has had sexual intercourse with in the last 12 months, including the ones already mentioned. Enter the total in the space provided. If her response is less than 10, use a leading zero. Since this question is asked only if the respondent has had sexual intercourse with at least three partners in the last 12 months, the answer should never be '00', '01' or '02'.
