   Are you taking antivirals? How often do you get outbreaks? What does your doctor say?

The big risk is giving birth when you have an outbreak and the seriously big risk is giving birth when you are having your first outbreak.

You've had herpes for awhile now and your doctor should be able to safely prescribe antivirals for you and eliminate the risk.

The first step in stopping the perceived stigma about genital herpes - is to stop believing in it yourself
