Contacting Previous Partners When You Have An STD

One of the most uncomfortable parts of learning that you have been infected with an STD is the thought of telling your previous partners. If you have found out that you have an STD, it is essential that you inform your previous recent partners so that they can get tested and avoid spreading the infection further.

There are a number of reasons you may not feel comfortable contacting previous partners. Guilt, shame and embarrassment are common reactions to an STD diagnosis, and in addition to this, you may also feel anger towards the person who gave you the infection. If your previous partner was abusive, you may not feel safe getting in contact with them, particularly to tell them something that could cause a volatile reaction.

There are a number of ways you can contact your previous partners to inform them. A quick phone call, text or email is convenient for many people, and in the majority of cases should be enough to motivate them to seek testing. If you would prefer to do it anonymously there are a couple of options available to you.

Get A Third Party To Break The News

In some cases your health practitioner may be willing to inform your previous partners on your behalf. Depending on your area, there may also be online services available who will notify former partners that they may have an STD and direct them to more information and places they can get tested. This can be a good option if you don’t feel safe contacting your exes directly, or are concerned about their potential reaction, although there may be a cost associated with using these services.

Use An Anonymous Email Address

Setting up your own anonymous email address with Gmail or hotmail can be a free and straightforward way to let ex-partners know about their possible STD status without compromising your privacy. Make sure the email address you set up cannot be linked to you. A matter of fact approach is best when breaking the news via email (or any other way). There is no need to go into detail, just state the facts and encourage them to get tested.

However you choose to let your former partners know about your diagnosis, the important thing is that you tell them. Not informing them could lead to long-term health problems for them, and could lead to them infecting others. Once you have advised your former partners of your STD diagnosis, you can hopefully start to move on, come to terms with your diagnosis and get on with your life.

  2. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy,Hpv,Weak Erection,Wart Remover. Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
