I am pretty sure you can have a natural birth. Your doctor will probably prescribe valtrex for the last two months of your pregnancy to reduce the chance of shedding.

Yes you can have a natural childbirth

I have been on several h chat rooms and have chatted with many h mothers. Evidently, your doctor will monitor you and put you on antivirals for the last few months of your pregnancy. Then the decision will be made on how you deliver.

Look to the right under "Life and Love" there is topic called "Having Children" I am sure that should answer most of your questions.

Good luck!

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
