Pregnant and stressing

Recommended Posts

Mona8787

Dear friends,

I am currently in my first trimester of pregnancy and have been diagnosed with a swab ghsv1. I'm so worried about delivery. What of they miss 1 blister and I go through vaginal delivery and baby gets infected. Can anyone let me know what the procedure or routine is? This not my first baby but previous pregnancies I was negative. My first outbreak was before this pregnancy by a year or so.

 

So stressed out and scared. Thank you for hearing me out.

Hey @Mona8787 the important thing to note is that as many as 1 in 5 babies born this very day are to mothers with genital HSV

In the scheme of things related to pregnancy, this is a minor concern and one with a few management issues.

Sorak with your doctor about your options. They include options such as taking antivirals for the last few weeks and c-sections. Working openly with your doctor will guide you to a safe delivery.

Thank you for your reply Wilson, you are always there us memebers. I'm wondering if I want to opt for c-section would they in Australia offer it to me due to my anxiety and stress or would they put me on antivirals instead and force me into vaginal delivery. I'm just after women who has been in that experience.

@Mona8787 it is all your choice. 

I feel thought that you should look into all risks associated with vaginal and c-section deliveries as guided by your doctor.

in the end, the choice is yours.

Hi Wilson,

 

So if someone is infected  around 2 months before conceiving and wanted a natural birth is it still possible to not infected the baby while delivering even though u have viral shedding as the antibodies were already passed to the body while in womb and this way the baby will not get herpes and will be healthy.

can you please suggest and guide.

Yes you most definitely CAN have a vaginal birth under those circumstances. Just inform your OBGYN and he or she can give you the appropriate meds, to lower your chance of passing the infection on to your baby.

Dear Mona8787,

I would like to know the indication of your doctor, because I am going through the same situation.

Thanks!

Hey I have had two vaginal deliveries and both my babies were - and are - fine. 

I have Type II genital herpes.

I took suppressive anti viral meds daily for the last few weeks under guidance from my ObGyn.

 

Happy to answer any other questions!

I was being conservative; many experts think it’s an even higher proportion.

See: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2780322/

According to Corey and Wald

An estimated 30 to 65 percent of pregnant women in the U.S. have genital infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 or -2.

      150$ it was a urethra catheter and the administered about 60 ml of ozone gas. I believe it was 2 syringes,Painless. I felt like the virus was in the bladder causing some sort of symptoms I had never experienced. The doctor was diagnosing me with interstitial cystitis, after the treatment I haven’t had those symptoms at all. It was minimized the same day. I did the first treatment. I can say I haven’t had sexual inter course either. I felt like that was the trigger

      What helped me after 2 treatment was urethral ozone therapy.

      Yep im male have the same burning feeling inside my penis.  It comes and goes during the tingling outbreak time.  Doesn't  hurt to pee. Very annoying and depressing it wont go away even with antivirals daily and even doubling up on them.  Even after cleaning up my diet no alcohol smoking vitamins orgeno oil DHEA and every suppliment know to help doesn't work.  That's what makes this hard.  My immune system ain't doing shit right now.  Im fucked!  The only hope i have now is some unknown terminal illness is taxing my immune system causing this.
