Also, if the doctor discloses your herpes without your permission, I'm pretty sure that's a violation of some sort of patient-doctor privacy oath or something.
I haven't heard of a country that requires the disclosure of herpes legally. HIV yes (unfortunately) but herpes, no.
Awww I'm sorry to hear this is worrying you! I had that period of paranoia too.
Look at it this way - 80% of people with HSV2 have no idea they have it. I think that, more than anything else, tells you how much the international community actually cares for herpes.
In the end, if HSV2 is an issue, you should be able to complain legitimately. No one should stop you from doing anything because of genital herpes. These are cold sores in hidden spots - it doesn't hurt you, or anyone else really. I'd get them on unethical discriminatory behaviour.
Heck, there are people in the military who have herpes. Chill.
I've read that suing for STIs and STDs encourage non-disclosure, and many advocates for people with STIs actively speak out against this, stating that it increases the stigma around STIs and STDs.
Does anyone have any information on groups who are active in this field and what work has been done so far?
