About Hsv 2 Vesicles
Hi I have been tested positive for hsv 2 but have never had symptoms I recently shaved my genitals and last night saw like two pimples that developed?
Had 3 small pimples on penis. Two on the shaft one on the head. Hsv 2 neg and hsv1 pos. 2 weeks later look better but have 4 fluid filled pimples ?
I know that ethically i must tell a potential partner i'm hsv-2 positive and i certainly will but i'm curious as to what the legal stand point is.
Probably none: To my knowledge, no laws in the US explicitly address legal issues about HSV2 transmission or informing partners. For sure there are none in WA, where you and I both live. While I of course endorse your intent to inform on ethical grounds, if you didn't and transmited the infection, there would be no criminal charges. A partner could bring a civil lawsuit, of course, but that's pretty rare. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Discordant couple: Just because you have it is not a guarantee that you will pass it on. There are many discordant couples. He has probably had cold sores (hsv type i) his whole life that has nothing to do with you. Your hsv type ii may be a "weak" type that has not infected him. This is absolutely possible (i'm surprised that you don't have type i also, only because it is so common). Be happy! this is good news! ...Read more
If 1 has HSV 2, should they tell their new sex partners that they have it? & if so, how shall they say it - "i have it" or "i've been exposed 2 it"?
Of course!: Anyone who has had (in the past or currently) HSV 1 or HSV 2 in the genitals area needs to talk with the partner about it, so they can together decide what to do about it. That means waiting until the relationship is strong enough before thinking about sex. That way, there is less chance of being rejected for carrying genital herpes. If one gets cold sores on the lips, also talk about oral sex. ...Read more
