In brief: Yes
Having herpes simplex should not inhibit you from becoming pregnant, but bear in mind that you must convey this information to your obstetrician, and they will decide how to manage your delivery.
Many will strongly suggest c-section to prevent the baby from becoming infected during transport through the vaginal barrel, which contains the virus even if you don't have symptoms.
