I'm 39 weeks pregnant and had HSV II for 2 years. I've always been on suppressive therapy. Right now I am taking 1500mg daily.
I am experiencing what I think is nerve pain on the left side - where I always got it when I first contracted the virus. I'm finding it hard to be sure, though, because I have also pulled my groin muscle on the left side, and everything just feels different down there! But, that being said, I also don't feel any of this on the right side. No pain, or burning/bruising like on the left.
So I'm really really worried about this. My midwife says that if I experience this in the last 3 days before labour, then I'll get a c-section because these sensations are the virus being active. I wanted to know what your thoughts are on this.
If I have to have a c-section, so be it. It just brings back bad hospital memories which make me very upset. That, and it rears ugly memories about the man who gave this to me.
Thanks for your thoughts and words of wisdom on this!
