I had no clue that I even had the virus, he said it came up in my blood, but I have never had any signs or symptoms ever.. is this normal? could he be wrong? Help please.. I don't understand this..

I'm surprised nobody has answered to such an important question. Unless your infection with HSV1 is recent and you were diagnosed because you had an outbreak in the genitals, I believe your baby would already carry temporary antibodies from you that would protect him from any problem. Perhaps the doctor is just taking a precaution. Most people around the world were born from HSV1 infected mothers for thousands of years. It's just one of those viruses that we get very early in life, like chickenpox. The Herpes Viruses Association from the UK often deals with this question. Send them an e-mail, I'm sure they'll asnwer quickly and will disspate your anxiety:

I know how you feel Im two months pregnant and was recently diagnosed with hsv2. I couldn't believe it I never had any symptoms. I was very depressed to say the least. My doc told me around 8 months I would be but on meds so I cant spread it to the baby. If u are unsure about your results you can make sure he did the igg test and ask what your numbers were. If he did igm get retested. In the case that your results are accurate you will be fine. hsv1 is common lots of people have it some have it for years and never know. This site will help you it has helped me a lot. The members are very knowledgeable. If you ever need to talk im here. I know how it feels, im stressed, pregnant and then told I have a disease I never had a symptom for. Sometimes I feel like im playing the waiting game. Good luck and congrats for your baby.

I had read in a fair few places that it will be fine having a baby unless you are in the middle of an outbreak in which most likely they will choose to give you a ceasarian. I would suggest asking your doctor for as much information as you can get.

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
