  • I don't know much about STD's, you should ask your doc to see if it's safe. Sorry...

  • From what I have understood talking to people in the past, it is safe in the womb for your baby. It is just whether you are having an out break when you deliver. But I am not sure, so if someone knows more, hopefully they will let you know. You really should talk to your doctor about it.

  • My nieces mother contracted Herpes while she was preggo with her. Its safe to carry a baby, but when it comes time to deliver, although I'm no pro- csection, it is usually the best option. You cant predict outbreaks or labor. You arent supposed to take Valtrex while preggo. If you deliver while you have an outbreak, you risk blinding the baby, or giving the baby herpes.

  • YOU MAY NEED TO HAVE A C SECTION. MOSTLY THE DELIVERY IS EFFECTED NOT REALLY THE PREGNANCY.
