It : It is crucial you get your doctor involved as you try to get pregnant, especially with your std history. Herpes can cause harm to a fetus, so it will be important to treat this medically (perhaps with medication) to ensure this is under control. Herpes tend to return when the body is under stress, and pregnancy may induce this. Also, your doctor can help you have more luck concieving by putting you on a prenatal care and supplements, advising on healthy lifestyles and ensuring your body is a healthy environment to grow a baby. Best of luck!
