6months post first outbreak and 5 weeks newly pregnant... I want a natural birth again. Any success stories???

Recommended Posts

Elizabeth love

I had my first outbreak about 6 or so months ago, I am now about 5 weeks pregnant. I want to have a natural birth. I had a great one with my daughter 3 years ago before I had herpes. I have read good stuff about woman succeeding  with natural birth and herpes but sounds like most woman knew they had it for quite sometime before becoming pregnant. I am even more worried since it's only been 6 months since my 1st outbreak. Does anyone have a success story that I could relate to regarding a newer contraction of genital herpes shortly before they got pregnant? Thanks loves

I've had 3 babies since being diagnosed. Each one was a vaginal birth. Towards the last month or so of your pregnancy your OB should put you on daily antivirals to make sure an outbreak doesn't spring up. When you get to labor and delivery they'll ask you all about that stuff, when your last outbreak was and whether you're currently showing any signs. They'll also do a quick check to make sure you don't have any sores or anything.

I’m dealing with this now. I’ve had it for years though but I’m so scared.. this is my first pregnancy, I’m 9 weeks right now and don’t know how to not stress about it I could cry some days :’( my OB knows and said she will put me on meds closer to labor.

I just had a successful vaginal birth a few months ago. I've had HSV2 for about 6years, but I had an outbreak just after conception, one at 7 months prego, and then one right after the baby was born. They put you in antivirals the last month, and that should do the trick.

I had only been with my husband for 6 months when I got pregnant with our daughter. I had my first outbreak a few months after we started seeing each other. I successfully gave birth to my daughter without transmitting it to her. They started me on valtrex daily at 36 weeks, until I delivered her at 39. It’s definitely possible, and from what I’ve gathered it doesn’t matter how long it’s been as long as your primary infection and outbreak don’t happen while pregnant. Since it happened beforehand, your chances of transmission are low :) especially if you take valtrex towards the end to prevent an outbreak at the time of delivery.

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?
    • HerpesOrNot
      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals?

      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
