  • A girl I worked with had something. I can't remember what it was tho, but her doc gave her antibiotics and it went away. He BF had cheated on her, and gave it to her.

  • My mother had herpes and gave birth to me naturally. Nothing bad happened to me at all. I get cold sores alot more than any normal person but am not sure if there is any relation.

  • Most women who have herpes give birth to children and all is well, although there is a risk and it is a serious one. If I were you, I would research your options thoroughly, don't allow the doctors to make your decisions without knowing the facts for yourself. This isn't a rare situation, but it can complicate things and can lead to the death of your baby. Be very careful to weigh the risks to the baby. .
