Pregnancy with GHSV-1

Recommended Posts

So I recently got engaged!!! But I’m super worried about starting a family when the time comes. I got diagnosed two years ago with ghsv-1 my outbreak aren’t really frequent. I had an outbreak last year in October because of a really bad/first uti. I haven’t had one since but I don’t know how my body would react to a baby. I just don’t want my child to be affected because of me and my wrong judge of men. Any advice out there?

You deserve to be so happy with your partner, and future family!! 🐥 🍼!!

Although it may seem scary, please know so many people with GHSV-1 and GHSV-2 give birth to children without passing their HSV to them. Typically what happens is you can give vaginal birth unless you have an outbreak or feeling one coming on. If that happens, the baby is delivered via cesarian. Also, antivirals are safe to take during pregnancy (unless otherwise not recommended by your doctor). 

Please know that it will be okay! Since you have GHSV-1 and the frequency of outbreaks for you seems to be very very low, it is unlikely that an outbreak would occur for you during the time of delivery. You could also talk to your OBGYN about taking suppressive medicine closer to the due date for extra precaution if you and your doctor think it would be a good idea. 

I hope this helps! Congratulations again and Best Wishes to you and your partner!! 💕🔔🕊️!!
