Recommended Posts

lovethislife

I just found out I'm 4 weeks pregnant. I've had genital herpes outbreaks for the last 6 months . I was exposed to the virus 2 years ago. Ive been having an outbreak once a month, but now its constant. Im on valtrex, herbs, special diet, etc. im really worried about transmitting the virus to my baby in the womb as well as childbirth

I don't think you can transmit to the baby in your womb, there is a risk of transmitting during childbirth if you're experiencing a current OB at that time, you may need to opt for a c section

Your obs are likely pregnancy related. I understand that its thru vaginal birth or if you get it while pregnant is the issue.  Surely your dr would know this?

And also, when your little one is ready to enter into the world, your doctor will do a check for any outbreaks. If you do have an outbreak you make likely have a c-section.

A propósito, alguém pode me dar uma dúvida; Já houve, pelo menos relatórios aqui neste espaço, casos de transmissão para a criança no útero?

I gave birth at the beginning of this year and I'm currently pregnant again 4 months later. I was told at the hospital I was positive for ghsv2, however I've had it since 2014 assuming my results were accurate I know who it came from. My baby was completely healthy I've never taken valtrex and probably had maybe 2 or 3 obs during my pregnancy. At the time of her delivery I had one and she was fine, but she had to be in the nicu for some days until they got her results back. Seeing as your infection isn't newly acquired you'll be fine and if there's a ob at the time of birth I'm sure they'll give you a cesarean.

Question, @Plsneedhelp — did you have outbreaks during the first trimester of your pregnancies and still turn out okay?

As stated by many on this thread, the only concern with herpes during pregnancy is during delivery. You'll be checked by the doctor at that time an if you're having an OB, they will perform a C-section

      You’ve seen my pics, you weren’t able to argue they weren’t herp

      @Ole that is not so good and makes it imperative to identify what is going on. Hopefully you can obtain the type specific test. Keep an open mind for other possible causes too.

      I would have to disagree with you on this. I have HSV2 on my mouth and I get outbreaks often. The person who gave it to me also had oral HSV2 and would have outbreaks every couple weeks. Also this Squarex newspost cites the prevalence of oral HSV2. They did not cite any primary literature but it sounds about right.  https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/squarex-announces-positive-results-from-completed-phase-2-study-of-sqx770-in-the-prevention-of-recurrent-herpes-labialis-300896065.html "Herpes labialis is a common condition characterized by blisters or erosions on the lips and skin around the mouth and nose. Most cases are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), but 10-15% of cases are caused by HSV-2 with this percentage reportedly increasing. "

      Thanks Wilson. U are always nice . I just want to make sure because symptoms keep coming and as I can’t afford western blot I think bkk have more advanced health care system and their test will be more reliable . btw I sent u a msg again , please reply if u find time

      Hey @Ole the combined test is not so good when positive as you don’t know type or whether you have both. However negative is negative for both types with high credibility. The visual diagnosis looks like it may well have been wrong.
