Can I donate blood if I have genital herpes?

Hey there! I'm doing well, thanks for asking. Glad to hear this space has been helpful for you.

Yes, you can donate blood even if you have type 2 herpes. Herpes is not a blood-borne disease; it's spread through skin-to-skin contact. While herpes antibodies can be detected in blood, they don’t pose any risk of transmission through blood donation. So, you’re good to go!

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Take care!
