So scared baby will get herpes every day

Recommended Posts

I am 28 weeks pregnant and so scared every day that my baby will get herpes while inside the womb.  I have dropped I think and sometimes it feels like the baby is almost kicking outside of my vagina.  It also feels as though its head is sitting in my vagina which is constantly shedding herpes.

 

It's awful to feel herpes popping up on you and then feel the baby kick.  Idk what to do.  The worrying about this is just almost too much to take.

You had hsv prior to your pregnancy so its quite ok in that regard.  Trust your gp.  You can only pass ot through birth if you have an outbreak. Many women have healthy babies.  Try to relax.  Try some meditation.  This is your mind out of control only

I had my son vaginally and he's perfectly fine. The only time to worry is if you're having an active outbreak at the time of your delivery. Your doctor knows what to do.

Idk I'm scared sometimes that the baby is having nerve pain inside of me.  Like sometimes if he is near my phone or computer and he moves I feel like maybe it was the energy hitting its nerve.  I'm really really scared about it.

      @Dvm, he says this to almost everyone.  Best ignore his bad advice

      Thx so much. However HSV can affect the trigeminal nerve/from post herpetic neuralgia and can actually cause all these symptoms. Some people, once affected can have short term symptoms,  while others have sporadic flare ups and some are permanently affected. Gabapentin for trigeminal neuralgia, prescribed by my neurologist, did help me for some time,  but I'm glad to be off it.  Hope my post helps someone w similar issues who havent gotten help from primary care Dr.

      @Dvm you can be assured that HSV is not the cause of these issues. As you have found, it’s likely a spinal issue and it sounds like you have found some help. Stick with that.

      Yes!! See my post about struggling w HSV 1 for 2 yrs. I just signed up today and told my story. Brain fog, pain on r side of face, dizziness,  vertigo, numbness. Hsv1 lives in trigeminal nerve and can cause all these issues w flare ups. Good luck, and your not alone.

      I'm new to this page. Looking to hear stories of others w my issues & hope to find support. I hv had cold sores all my life. But 2 yrs ago I had a flare w 1 on my lip & 1 in ea nostril.  Then the pain on my right side of the face started, along w numbness,  dizzy, balance issues and a weird eye twitch and sensation. After countless Dr appts and misdiagnoses, research led me to find that the herpes lives in the face in the ganglion root & when it flares can cause all my symptoms and it happened to permanently damage my trigeminal nerve. After going to numerous Dr, neurologist,  having MRI etc. My diagnosis was confirmed and although I dont like to take meds, I started on Gabapentin.  2 yrs I suffered and was miserable,  near suicidal and hopeless,  but I kept trying Drs and a friend had me tried an osteopath.  Who started doing small manipulation on my scalp and neck, within a few days I progression of me feeling better started. Within a month I was off the meds and feeling amazing, I also found a new massage therapist that I worked w and that helped along w an accupuncturist.Then after a few months a trigger of cbd w menthol set me off for about a week then felt great again & then the accupuncture gal used tiger balm (w menthol) and that set me off.  Good again and then yesterday some stress caused a flare of about 6 mouth sores on my roof of my mouth, woke up to massive vertigo.  Started valtrex and talked to my Dr about just staying on Valtrex daily. I found this page & hope to hear others experiences & maybe mine can shed light on yours.
