How Would I Know If I Passed On The Herpes Virus To My Baby
Baby is watched: A woman with a history of genital herpes, even without fresh sores on her genitals, can transmit herpes virus to her baby during delivery. Such an at-risk baby is carefully examined, so that anti-viral medications can be started if the baby shows signs of herpes infection (rashes or sickly behavior). If the baby looks fine in his first month, then he probably did not catch mom's genital herpes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I went to the doctor and the doctor said I don't have the herpes virus itself I just have antibodies what's it mean can I still pass it on?I'm lost
You can pass it on: If you have antibodies to herpes, 1 or 2, you were infected with the virus. The virus may be dormant but it remains in the person's body for the rest of her/his life and can be passed on even if there are no visible lesions.

If i take acyclovir for a year, will it effectively reduce the amount of genital herpes virus in me I have genital herpes and when i got it, my ex-boyfriend didn't have any outbreak or at least i didn't see it. So i'm really worried if i will pass it to m
Unfortunately : Unfortunately the herpes virus will remain dormant in your nerves indefinitely. The twice daily Acyclovir is merely suppressing the virus in order to decrease frequency and duration of outbreaks. The odds of you passing the herpes virus on to your partner is decreased when there are no active lesions, and further decreased while on suppressive therapy. You will have to discuss the risks with him and decide what's right for you as a couple. As far as pregnancy goes, you can try to achieve a pregnancy like anyone else. The issue is during delivery. There are complications that can occur during delivery if an outbreak is present. If you decide to become pregnant your OB or provider will guide you on treatment and delivery options. ...Read more
