  • You don't want a c-section if you don't have to have one. It is major surgery. Research has shown if you don't have an outbreak a c-section doesn't reduce risk.

  • I didn't have any outbreaks but my doc started me on acyclovir about a month before my due date to suppress the virus. I would go vaginal over a section any day....
