What to expect from herpes diagnosis? Will clinic tell my sexual partners?


Recommended Posts

well, i was dating a guy for 3 months and we broke up about 4 months ago. i was having no symptoms then, but now about 2-3 months after last having sex i feel like i maybe possibly have herpes. my question is, when i do go to the womens clinic to get checked, if i do have herpes will they ask me to name my sexual partners so they can warn them and have them get checked out? my friend said if i do they will ask for a list of past or current partners so they can tell them to get checked id rather tell them myself, is this true?

Hello and Welcome!


Simple answer is no .. Herpes isn't an Identifiable disease like HIV. So it would remain completely confidential.


However, I would *strongly* suggest that if you do come up H+ that you contact them when you are ready, simply because the vast majority of people (80%) with H don't know they have it and that is why it keeps getting spread around. You can do it in your own time and your own way but I hope you would do that both for their sake and for any of their future partners.
