Have you ever had to do it? If so, how did you tell them? How did they react?
I’m lucky to have never actually had a bad experience with this. I have unfortunately had chlamydia twice, and just to be safe I sent a quick text message to the people I had had sex with since my previous STI test. They were all really good about it, thanked me for people so open and honest with them and said that they would get tested themselves. I’d heard some horror stories of people freaking out when being informed a sexual partner has has an STI, so I couldn’t believe my luck!
Wondering if anyone has experience of telling a potential sexual partner that they have an STI? Or have you been in the position of someone disclosing to you that they have one? How did you/that person deal with the information? It’s so important to be open with potential partners if you have an STI but its a scary conversation to have! There are some great examples above but does anyone have any more stories to share?
