How does anonymous reporting work?
STIs can cause annoying health problems and be transmitted to others without being noticed. If you’d like to warn your sexual partner but would prefer to stay anonymous, you have the option to do so. By sending an anonymous warning via text messaging, you can spare your sexual partner(s) a lot of unpleasantness. Warn them even if you don’t have any symptoms.
Every situation is different, which is why it makes sense to carefully consider what you want to tell them. Explain the troublesome situation in the text message. It’s good to indicate which STI you contracted as well as where you got tested so that he or she can also do it there.
You can simply send an anonymous STI warning via this website. After sending it, you will receive a notification of delivery indicating that the message has been delivered.

Difference between STI vs. STD
STI stands for sexually transmitted infection, whereas STD means sexually transmitted disease. Essentially one is an infection and the other one disease.
STIs are much more common than STDs. STDs start with an STI. Before you get the disease, you get the infection. Once a sexually transmitted bacteria or virus enters your body, the infection may progress into a disease. This doesn’t necessarily need to happen; that’s why STIs are much more common than STDs.
The STI progresses into an STD once the STI becomes symptomatic. The symptoms of the STI become present and disrupt the body’s normal functions and processes.
STIs can be lingering around symptomless for many months or years, before manifesting into an STD. The term STI is less stigmatized than STD, likely because the infection is a more palatable word than disease.
Now that you know the difference between STI vs. STD, make sure to get tested regularly. In case of a positive test, make sure to report your STI to your sexual partners, who could be at risk. Sending an anonymous text is vital so that they can get tested for themselves.
