  1. Hey guys, new here as of today. I’m currently 27 weeks pregnant and I’ve been having more days with outbreaks (single lesion, same spot) than not. I’m praying for a vaginal delivery but obviously want to do what’s best for My Baby but the thoughts of not being able to bring baby into the world vaginally wrecks me... At 20 weeks I was diagnosed with HSV2 after requesting testing because I had known for probably 3 years but was too ashamed and was in denial to go to a dr and get the actual diagnosis but wanted to take all precautions for my baby... Anyway, the DR put me on Valacyclovir 3x a day for 7 days and then 2x a day. I noticed absolutely no change. It was like that one lesion would heal for 2 days and then come back for a week. Today I asked her to switch medications and she told me to just keep taking the Valacyclovir for suppression. I guess my question(s) are #1) how long did it take some of you to see suppression? 2) How many of you had to have a c-section because of active lesions and 3) did anyone’s dr miss a lesion during delivery and was your baby ok? I’m so torn because I don’t want my family to know and what am I suppose to tell them in the event of a c-section when they’ll all be there at the time? 😭— Thank you for any and all comments in advance. I’m so hoping I can find some peace of mind within this forum. PS: Recently I found that Tree Tea Oil keeps the lesion away longer than the medication did and the dr gave me the ok to continue. Anyone else?

    Hsv ii and now pregnant

    Hello. I hate to even post this but its causing me some distress and anxiety. I am 28 years old and when i was 18 i lost my virginity to someone who gave me HSV II. I am currently 9wks preg. and have been thinking a lot about it lately.. cannot quit thinking about it actually. Although i havent had a serious OB in years and years.. i cant help but feel like a failure. I am in therapy because alot of my anxiety and self esteem stems from this issue. I do not want to hear horror stories of what can happen. Trust me I know. I have discussed with my doc and she will put me on meds in the 3rd trimester. I understand 1 in 4 or 1 in 5 people have this though but sometimes i feel so alone. I also read that its really just contracting it DURING preg. that is a a main concern. and that if I have had it for years and years chances are about 1% passing it to baby but i am still really scared. www.whattoexpect.com/pregnancy/herp... I just dont want to feel alone in this. Im not sure what to do.. I feel like i have so much working against me in this pregnancy i just want to be happy but feel like ive already failed my baby. anyone with past experience that can help me idk why I’m so scared

    Is this really herpes?

    My first time posting here... so here is my story. I am newly married and newly pregnant. At my 3rd OB appointment my doctor told me that, what I thought was a yeast infection was actually herpes (hsv1 on my genitals). Blood work confirmed this. Shortly after I was made aware I noticed two raised lesions. Doctor never looked and told me that they were herpes sores. Keep in mind this is my very first outbreak and being pregnant is super scary. Anyways... I have had these raised bumps for almost 3 months now. Every now and then they will open and bleed a little when I wipe. I am beginning to wonder if it's actually herpes. If so, how do I make them go away. Any extra advice for a newly diagnosed, and pregnant woman would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I was diagnosed with HSV-1 (genital) in May during my 3rd month of pregnancy. I'm 34 years old and it was my first outbreak and by far the worst pain I have ever experienced. Anyway, the doctor told me I could have had this dormant for years, but the combination of pregnancy, diabetes, and stress had lowered my immune system so much that I had an outbreak. I survived through the outbreak and the devastation (or so I thought). It's October, I'm going into my 8th month of pregnancy and I'm now in the middle of a second outbreak. I was told that the outbreaks would get less, in duration, severity, and frequency after the initial outbreak. The pain and devastation are back. Much like my initial outbreak. I can hardly walk, I've had to miss work, and I feel like I'm going out of my mind. All I can do is wait it out. I feel like I can't take much more of this. Does it ever get better?
