your partner be tested for the same STD. Unless you've had recent multiple partners, it's quite possible that you got it from them and they should be treated as well.

In general, it's a sign that you care about them and that you are interested in their health. As far as how to tell.... That's a very individual sort of thing. The important thing is that you do tell them before engaging in any behavior that might expose them.

I would avoid any sexual contact until you were done with your treatment and your partner has also gotten tested and treated if need be. You don't want to be ping ponging the infection back and forth between the two of you. Stick to manual stimulation of each other until you are both done treating this.
