First Trimester..

Recommended Posts

Hello. I haven't been here in a number of years. I have a few questions, as I was pondering I knew this was where I needed to go.


So I am in my first trimester of pregnancy, and I wasnt aware of this, but my doctor asks me if I had any outbreaks. I told him I had just got over one.. Well this pregnancy is taking me for a toll I have had a lot of OB's so far. Any who he told me that having an outbreak during the first trimester was very dangerous. I was only aware that an outbreak during delivery could pose a threat.

I have been trying to do some home research, and I can't find a single study going back regarding it posing a threat during the first trimester. I am confused buddies. Please help!

I've read that the risk is greatly reduced if you've had HSV-2 at least 6 months prior to becoming pregnant. I became pregnant exactly 6 months after I found out, and I probably had outbreaks without knowing during most of my pregnancy. My daughter is 2 months old and healthy. I obsessed and read so much, but never did I read anything about the dangers of an outbreak during the first trimester. The only risks I've read or heard about related to the first trimester is if you get HSV-2 during the pregnancy.
