So I need to know... After you got tested positive for HSV

So I need to know...
After you got tested positive for HSV 2 did you have to go to the health dept. and tell them who you've had intercourse with and sign it? The doctor told me I would have to do that once they call me but I never got a call.

I was never told that and never did that

Are you in the US. I've heard of ppl telling the health dept and then they send an anonymous call to the partner or potentially infected and tell them what's up and that they should get tested.

How would it be mandatory?

Yes. I am in US.

Which state are you in?

@Lbm90 Arkansas.

That's crazy I don't think you have to do that and I don't know if that would just be a state law or what we don't here

We don't here in Oregon, but I would ask your doctor maybe on the advice nurse line. They tend to know the answers.

doctor has the option to report stds for statistical recording. I'm guess they're trying to put the responsibility on you to report it

I'm having a feeling the guy I was head over heels for gave me this. He didn't tell me he had it... Now that I have it, he's "not ready for a relationship" makes me sick...
