Celibacy and disclosure

Recommended Posts

I’m a 19 year old college student who was just diagnosed with hsv2 a week ago. I’ve decided to be celibate so I can focus more on making real long-term connections rather than trying to find love through sex (I’ve had enough experience in that department lol). So since sex is off the table, if I do end up falling for someone, is there still a need to disclose?

If you plan to be, or think you likely will be physical with someone, disclose first.

Other than that, if you aren't putting them at risk by making physical contact and don't intemd to do so, disclosure wouldn't be so pressing of an issue.

However, if you are going to invest time and effort into building a relationship, there will eventually be a point where it is necessary to disclose anyway.
