There are a lot of different kinds of herpes - for some women it can cause problems for the pregnancy. If you have had to have a lot of procedures done on your cervix, it can be difficult to carry a baby to term. But the short answer is yes, you can TTC. Your OB/MW will have to be aware of your disease status so they can make sure you don't have an active infection at the time of birth. If you do, c-section is usual to protect your baby. If you don't, vaginal birth is probably safe. You can find out more at the MoD article Genital Herpes and Pregnancy.
