If the test is positive: letting sexual partners know

Talking about sexually transmitted infections (STIs) isn’t always easy. But it’s important that your sexual partners know about your infection so they can get tested and treated if necessary. It’s not about blaming people. It’s about preventing ‘ping-pong infections‘ between you both and protecting any other sexual partners. In this way you can help stop infections spreading more widely.

Why talk about it?

STIs spread easily and have a serious impact on health. That’s why it’s important to let your sexual partners know. Being open and honest about STIs means taking responsibility for yourself and others.
