Is it worth disclosing I have herpes?

Considering more than half the population has it... Should I continue to disclose I have it? I know it sounds crazy, but my life has changed so much once I found out I have it. I have never had symptoms I only took all tests because somebody forced themselves on me, now I wish I never did. I don't have the heart to not disclose, but people tend to judge me so quick when before if I wanted to I could have had almost anyone with my confidence. I'm so heartbroken, idk what to do.

    You should disclose to any one you want to have sex with.

    Genital herpes is rarely passed outside of having sex.

    The whole world doesn't need to know. If you feel some one should know, then tell them if you trust them to keep it to themselves.

    You only need to disclose it to those who need to know - such as a potential sexual partner and if asked on a medical form. It does not need to come up in everyday conversation.
