Loveloss, how are you and the baby going? I know your post was from a while ago but just wanted to check in and see how you are both going.
I have had genital herpes for years and delivered both of my babies vaginally and they are perfectly healthy! I took oral Valtrex for the last month of my pregnancies just to be sure there were no OB's during delivery and on advice of my wonderful Obstetrician I was able to birth them naturally.
If you have any questions, just ask as I'd be happy to answer them.
Motherhen (cute name BTW), congratulations on the pregnancy.... so exciting and you are so close to the end!
I'm the one with herpes in our relationship so I'm sorry for what you are going through as i know you didn't ask for it (well none of us did) and it makes it hard in a relationship.
Did you know your partner had it? Or was it a real shock?
I've had both my babies vaginally (I have genital herpes) and both are fighting fit and suffered no consequences from my condition. I've had it for years but had to take oral Valtrex for the last month of my pregnancy just to be sure there were no outbreaks.
I'm happy to answer any questions you may have as I'm sure things are getting stressful for you now.
Best of luck with the impending arrival - make sure you check in with your birth announcement!!
Ah I see. I'm sorry about that. Thankfully we can support each other through this.
Is it just a singular pimple that sits on its on red spot, filled with a white pus? Or are there multiple pimples close to each other? How bi are they and do they hurt when you touch them? Do they hurt the entire time they are there?
sorry for all the questions. I'm just trying be as informed as possible. Thank you
Thanks for inputs but it's really getting to me..
I'm having suicidal thoughts I'm alone dealing with this and I'm already emotional due to my pregnancy hormones but I have a doctors appointment in the am I will be sure to bring the blood up into questioning.
This is rediculous, I phoned the laboratory and they said that the blood test will not show the type, only a fluid swab can.. Arg!
Getting results for urethral swab tomorrow, but I think it might be a false negative, or type 2, based on the number of recurrences I've had in 5 months..
Just wish I knew exactly what I'm dealing with here!
Really? Could you describe your outbreaks? How high on your pain scale would you say? When I press on mine it feels like I'm pressing a pimple but it isn't excruciating.
Also, how long do the outbreaks last and do you experience any prodrome symptoms
It hurts like a pimple kinda stings. Yes i am still learning my body since this is new but ill get tingling or a weird feeling on the outside of my labia
I'm out of the country now and it's been three months since my last IgG (tested negative for both 1 and 2).
Ive experienced tingling in my urethra too (original site of infection according to Doctor I saw back then) so I guess it spread to my oral area too during the incident.
