WHOM DO YOU TELL THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN EXPOSED TO AN STD?

Some people find it easier to notify anyone they might have had sex with in the last year. However, the amount of time that is recommended for other diseases actually varies for different infections.

If you got diagnosed with... ...notify the following:
Chlamydia Sexual contact within the 60 days before you had symptoms or were diagnosed
Gonorrhea Sexual contact within the 60 days before you had symptoms or were diagnosed
Primary Syphilis
(Sores)
Sexual contact within the 3 months before you had symptoms or were diagnosed
Secondary Syphilis
(Rashes)
Sexual contact within the 6 months before you had symptoms or were diagnosed
Early Latent Syphilis
(positive blood test)
Sexual contact within the 12 months before you were diagnosed
Hepatitis B Sexual contact within the 12 months before you were diagnosed
Herpes Sexual contact within the 12 months before you were diagnosed
HIV Sexual contact within the 12 months before you were diagnosed
Scabies Sexual contact within the 30 days before you were diagnosed

Time frames for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV are based on CDC's 2015 STD Treatment Guidelines and partner notification standards of care.

Hepatitis B, herpes, and scabies patients are not routinely offered partner services and standards of care have not yet been established.
