Recently diagnosed Herpes – How many previous partners do I Tell?

Dear Dr. Tom:

I’m wondering how many months should I go back in my intimate contact department to advise previous partners of my recently diagnosed Herpes?

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Anonymous:

Herpes is not a reportable STD, so any advising that you may do is a human kindness. I suggest that you consider the extent to which the spread of an insidious infectious agent may be curtailed and act accordingly. If you have already infected some, the damage is already done, but spread may be curtailed further if you act. You might be guided by any information as to when you became infected, but if you have been widely sexually active, that bit of information may be hopelessly lost in the contact pyramid.
