How to Get Pregnant if You Have Genital Herpes
Genital herpes is a very common condition, affecting one in six people between ages 14 to 49. The disease is much more common in women, which makes it a big concern when it comes to females who wish to get pregnant. If a woman has a known case of genital herpes, she and her partner can plan to try to get pregnant when symptoms are absent in both partners.
However, if there are no physical symptoms present in either partner, a pregnancy can be planned based on normal ovulation patterns. Finding a way to track ovulation is the best way to get pregnant whether a woman has genital herpes or not. If a woman does have genital herpes with symptoms, doctors can prescribe medications that can make conception easier and less painful.
When a woman with genital herpes gets pregnant, it is so important to stay in close contact with her doctor throughout the duration of the pregnancy, labor and delivery, because herpes can be transmitted from mother to baby. Most of the time, a cesarean delivery is planned when a mother has herpes, to keep the baby from being exposed to the vaginal canal, where the disease could be transmitted. If you have herpes and wish to get pregnant, it is very important to talk to your doctor.
