Hi, is there anyone out there with genital herpes and pregnant? I have it and I'm 33weeks and starting to get a little nervous about delivering. I know the odds are against the baby getting it, but still scared. Anyone else?

A friend of mine has herpes. Her daughter is normal and healthy. She said as long as you're not having an outbreak during labor and delivery then you have nothing to worry about. But if you have an outbreak, you have the option to deliver the baby via C-sec. This is what I was told.

I think that there is a thread of the same lines in the S_x and Pregnancy forum. It's pretty long and a lot of the women that have posted on there have a lot of information that they have received from their doctors as well as them discussing their fears of delivering as well. You may want to check it out!

Hi heather I have genital herpes as well. My doctor has informed me that there is a medication that you can take a week or so before the delivery date that hopefully prevents a breakout. There is no affects on the baby- make you at ease. I have only had one breakout since I have become pregnant. I am 18 weeks along now. Good luck with everything, and try to relax. What will be will be when it comes to the breakouts. Cheers
