Trying to get pregnant

Recommended Posts

So I’ve had genital herpes for about 4 years my fiancé and I are trying to get pregnant, I just have some concerns not sure if I will get crazy outbreaks during the pregnancy due to hormonal  changes and if I do can it be managed with medication that will not harm my child?

Also is it safe to have a vaginal birth? This will be my first pregnancy when and if it happens and under these circumstances I just want to be well informed.

I have had  herpes for 5yrs and 2 children since having herpes. (My daughter is 2 my son is 1). I experienced a breakout with both pregnancies and the medication was safe to take (acyclovir) . Majority doctors will prefer you have a c-section only if you have an outbreak during the time of delivery. 

Hope this helped!
