GHSV 1 FEMALE 8 MONTHS PREGNANT-SEEKING NORMAL DELIVERY


Recommended Posts

Hello There,

 

I'm pregnant and having GHSV1, I got it before 3 months before conception. I have talked to my gynae and she said if you dont have any active lesgions you can have natural delivery but the fact is that I got it from my husband who always was asymptomatic and If I get it from him while he was asymptomatic, I have fear that I can pass it to my baby while delivering,  Though the fact that the antibodies have passed from placenta to my baby already but does it makes a difference and my baby will not get it while I have a normal pregnancy, I asked the gynae for C-section but she is saying that there is no problem to the fetus as of now but I m afraid, can you please share your real life experience if someone had a GHSV with natural birth and have not passed it to the baby.

Thanks a lot for this info and help.

Hello optimistic251985,

I am in the same situation already entering the third trimester of pregnancy and looking for experiences, especially type 1 genital herpes. I have the same fear of the asymptomatic phase. My doctor says it's safe to do prophylaxis.

Have you had your baby?

Hello,

Yes, my baby is doing fine! How long you have this GHV1 , if that is an old one and asymptomatic and acquired 2-3 months before pregnancy your baby should be fine if delivered vaginally. I had the same fear but my gynae advised that there will be no issue in case of no symptoms however i was still not believing her and the day my baby was born she had some watery discharge in her one eye which made me think that she got infected but that later comes out as a tear duct block which is pretty common in new born. Now she is absolutely fine and healthy.

I wish you a safe delivery & may god protect your baby in our womb and outside world, have some faith and follow your gynae.

God bless you both.

Hello optimistic251985,

I have been around for about 5 years, but I always have manifestations. Now in pregnancy I had two manifestations, the last one was cured recently. I think after vaginal delivery I will be desperate thinking that I came to him. How hard that is our decision! But I'm glad to know you had a successful vaginal delivery and that your baby is fine. God is very good and knows what he does, He takes care of our little ones. Did you have any manifestations during pregnancy? Did you take prophylaxis with acyclovir?

Thank you!

      @CHT I am not sure what country you are in but I am in the U.K. and they don’t do blood tests for HSV at the standard sexual health clinics maybe at private ones where you have pay they do.   What would checking my anti bodies confirm ? And she didn’t swab the area as she said there was nothing to swab and no lesions but I am sure there was. She seemed quite inexperienced.  I have had an lesion swabbed years  ago  to confirm HSV2 but no swabs  since.  I would like  to know if they are HSV or my excema as I never know which is which so I just don’t have sex when I get these feelings as I don’t know if I’m having a Outbreak.  I will have a look at the link thanks. I wouldn’t want to go on the implant again as I don’t want 3 years of birth  control in my arm. I may consider the mini pill which is the same hormone as the implant as I can easily stop this it I have a bad reaction. I have an appointment with a specialist at the sexual health clinic next week

      Hey @PlainJane what a thoroughly nasty piece of work! Im afraid it is the waiting game for you, having said that, there seems very little reason for you to suspect herpes.

      @WilsoInAus Thank you so much for the reply! You did before I even asked lol. I really didn’t want to talk to her about it. The last time we had spoken she was really mean and nasty to me. Threatening to beat me up because she was drunk. I don’t want her going around telling people I asked her if she has herpes because I have it. Which she absolutely will. Or she does and then I will be her scape goat for her to tell people I’m the one who gave it to her. I guess it’ll be a waiting game to get blood work to confirm or deny the presence of HSV2 antibodies.

      Hello @PlainJane I think I recall your partner's post and would suggest that what he had as revealed in the photos was almost certainly not herpes - and reaffirmed above! The first thing to note is that you cannot be infected with HSV-1 and then test at a level 43.5 a total of 9 days after the incident. That's not how your body works. It would takes several weeks and possibly months to reach that level. Undoubtedly the HSV-1 infection is old and highly likely an oral infection from your childhood. The next thing to note is that toys or any object are not a great way of transferring herpes. Typically the rubbing of the skin area that is shedding the virus against the recipient's skin is needed. Transfer any other way is somewhere between infeasible to impossible. Your pictures do not look like herpes to me in favour of folliculitis - your partner's thigh shots are almost certainly folliculitis. Also note that this female friend must have HSV-2 for this to even warrant the vaguest notion of herpes being a cause. Can you ask her? If she does have HSV-2, then you will need a 12-16 week IgG test in order to have a conclusive answer (with a strong expectation of negative).

      @WilsoInAus Could you review this? You replied previously on my boyfriends post of his butt rash. I guess all I can really do is find a facility who will swab when I have a suspecting bump, since my doctor won’t for some reason and then redo the blood test for HSV2 since it’s now been 4 weeks since possible exposure.
