A member asked:

Is it routine to test for genital herpes during pregnancy before you deliver?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Depends: If you have a known history of herpes outbreaks or a possible exposure to herpes while pregnant, yes, it's important to test if you start having symptoms around time for delivery. If you've never been exposed or had the disease, then routine testing is often not necessary.
