Telling past sexual partners they may have been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease is never an easy task, but it is the responsible thing to do to help protect the health of past sexual partners. And it is one way to try to prevent STDs from continuing to be spread.
InSPOTLA has created an email system to let you notify past sexual partners they may have been exposed to an STD. If you find out you have an STD, you can sign up on the site and have an email sent, letting (him/her/them) know they should be tested. If you prefer, the email notifications can be sent anonymously through the site.
The creators of inSPOTLA highlight that if you should receive an email notification, it does not mean that you do have an STD, just that you are at risk for having been exposed and you should contact a doctor or clinic to be tested. Doctors normally recommend STD testing every three to six months for anyone who is sexually active with more than one partner.
Please read the terms and conditions of inSPOTLA and be respectful before using the site.
