I am 9 weeks pregnant. I found out i had herpes 11 years ago. Has anyone here had a healthy baby even though they have herpes? I am kind of concerned, If anything i will just have a C-section.

I don't have a baby yet- 20 wks now- but I have herpes- 12 yrs- and my pregnancy has been great . In the beginning when my body was getting used to the baby I had a few breakouts but everysince around wk 9 I haven't had any breakouts. they will put me on Valtrex at 32 wks to ensure I don't have a breakout during the delivery, but if for some reason i do I will have a c-section. A friend of mine has herpes and she has a few kids so It's definitely possible. Remember 1 out of every 5 people have herpes simplex 1 or 2 so it is plenty of women out here who have herpes and have had healthy babies.

i have herpes and both my kids came out perfect. the midwife told me its ok as long as i dont have a break out when im near labor, if u do u have to have a c- section. i only ever had one breakout which was when i found out i contracted them years ago, never had them since. dont worry you will be find. just remember to let the midwife know you have it and it is written in your medical records.
