Finding out you’ve just been exposed to Gonorrhea means you need a way to tell your partner that they need to get tested. Are you worried they will go crazy when you tell them? Don’t panic. We’re here to help.
Step 1: Stop sleeping with her until you’ve been tested and if necessary, treated.
Step 2: Use The Incognito Help Line to tell your partner that they might have been exposed to an STD and they need to get tested. Chances are, they’ve had a lot of partners and won’t have a clue where the message was coming from.
Step 3: Avoid being in the same place as your partner when they get the news that they may be infected. Leave town or make sure they are informed when they can’t come see you immediately.
Step 4. Be there to console them. Promise not to be mad, and get tested together.
At the end of the day, many people have sex someone while having an STD without ever knowing it; that is until they’ve given it to someone else who exhibit symptoms. For example, 1 in 4 has herpes and a larger percentage will rarely if ever exhibit symptoms. People can go years living undiagnosed with HPV or HIV, and never know it. So don’t be too hard on yourself. Many times there is an explanation, so make sure they get the message instead of focusing on you being the messenger, and let The Incognito Help Line tell them to get tested, so you can move on and focus on yourself.
