and I don't know what to do next. I have been prescribed an antibiotic and it was suggested that I contact any sexual partner. How do you call someone and tell them you have an STD???

Just buck up and do it. Don't think about it. Pick up the phone, be blunt, and let him know he's been exposed to an STD and should get treated. It happens (quite often) and anyone or everyone who is sexually active is at risk. Keep in mind that you got it from someone and there is a chance he already knows about it.

You may want to think about using condoms to help prevent this kind of thing in the future.
