    It'll be so they can see if you have any record of things and if you've had something before but haven't told them.

    They also ask so they can get an idea of when you last had a sexual health screen - some STI's dont have symptoms that are easy to spot but can cause long term problems if not treated within certain time frames. If they know that you have had a previous sexual health check up they can use that to gauge when you were free of anything they might have picked up.

    Staff in sexual health clinics dont judge, they have seen it all before ( usually in the last hour) and anyone who is sexually active should get regular check ups at least as regularly as they change partners.
