Well I'm sorry 2 hear what you are going thru... I myself found out I had herpes when I was 17 weeks prego!!!! I never knew I had it till I got an outbreak and I went 2 the doctors and he did cultures... anyways I never knew if that was a primary attack or not or if I had the virus for a long time without an attack... soooo I scheduled for a c section.... I was 2 scare to deliver vaginally eventhough they say the risk is 1% that's way 2 much of a risk 4 me... eventhough the risk of the fetus would catch it in utero is 5% and its much higher than the 1%... anyways I just had my baby boy... and he is now 3 weeks old.. I'm still scared as hell that he will develop symptoms but so far he is doing good.. I did bring him to the ER already but I guess I was over reacting... how far along are u?? Were u pregnant when u had that 1st outbreak? Well keep us updated and let us know if you actually tested positive for the big "h"... u never know.. It might be somethin else I heard sometimes yeast infectionscan be confused for it.. But anyways.... talk 2 u soon!! U r in my prayers!

Thanks For Support!!

So Far I'am A Little Over A Month Pregnant...and Im So Excited Because It Will Be Baby Number 2!but Honestly Im Just So Worried Although I've Been Reading Alot On How Low Transmission Is On A Mother Who Has Developed Antibodies,there Is Still That Chance!

Well Anyways I Experienced My First Outbreak Back In June,exactly Two Weeks After Sleeping With Him And Ever Since Then I Just Lost It!!i Didn't Have The Guts To Tell Him Because Somehow In All The Confusion It Felt Like It Was My Fault!and Then I Just Felt So Damned Ashamed To Go To The Doctor,like I Was The Lowest Thing On Earth!

This Is Why Im Scared To Tell Him Because Im Afraid That He Will Just Blow Me Off And Leave Me!but Now I Have No Choice I Have To Tell Him,i Just Dont Know How To Begin!

Im Just Praying For The Best!!

But Thank You All For Your Prayers And Your Support,i Really Appreciate This!but Anyways I Will Keep Yall Informed...

Wish Me Luck!!!

      Yeah and the stigma hit me pretty hard since I'm originally from Asia and we don't have sex ed or STD education so the regret and self-hating are as bad as stigma. Hoping is the only way to get me out of suicidal thoughts. I know that a lot has been done and I'm glad. I just hope they continue with the hsv research instead of abandoning it cuz it's not life-threatening and I also hope that the big pharma conspiracy isn't real.

      @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.
