Can a possible kidney donor candidate donate their kidney of they have HSV2?


Posted by CG822

I have genital herpes, I am 26yo female. 

 I met someone who is a donor match for his father for a kidney.  His father had 2 transplants already, so he is next in line if this 2nd one fails

 He has an understanding that if he were to contract anything of this sort, he would be disqualified to donate?  Is this true?  What are the options?  Besides no sex at all.
