Can you get herpes while pregnant?

Im not going anonymous because i dont think i have them.
In the beginning of my pregnancy i was asked if i would like to get tested for everything (including herpes) and i said yes...

Everything came back negative which is GREAT!
So i shouldnt have herpes...but I noticed white puss bubbly things on my vagina so i called the doctor.

My fiance said it could be herpes because we saw a picture of them and they look EXACTLY like herpes from the google image!!

Can i have herpes just from being pregnant? or would it mean fiance has done a bad thing and didnt tell me??

  • I'm pretty sure its from shaving. I get it sometimes. With all the extra bloodflow its really easy for your skin to get irritated. If you have doubts about your fiance, i would have your doctor take a look but i'm pretty confident you are herpes-free=)

  • You can get herpes any time any place. Doesn't matter if you're young or old, pregnant or infertile.

  • you can't just develop herpes, you have to have contracted it. Call your doc

  • Pregnancy doesn't cause herpes if that is what you are getting at. Having unprotected sex with a std positive partner is what causes herpes.

  • You can get them anytime, and they are NOT due to pregnancy they are contracted. So the only way to know for sure is to get tested or go to the doctor and let him or her take a look. If it comes back positive SOMEONE has some explaining to do.
    GOOD LUCK!!!!!

  • Pregnancy does not protect you from any disease. There is also a possibility what your SO has seen are labial cysts. Go to your Dr so you know for sure.
