    Current recommendations by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) are to treat all primary outbreaks of genital herpes with antiviral medications, including primary outbreaks in pregnant women. The antiviral medications available to treat genital herpes are acyclovir, famciclovir, and valacyclovir. Acyclovir has the most data on the safety of use in pregnancy. A registry of over 1000 pregnant women who were exposed to acyclovir during early pregnancy suggests that acyclovir is probably safe as there were no increases in birth defects.

    There are two types of herpes simplex virus: HSV-1 and HSV-2. Both virus types can cause sores around the mouth (herpes labialis) and on the genitals (genital herpes). Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV).

    Cold sores sometimes called fever blisters, are groups of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth. The skin around the blisters is often red, swollen, and sore. The blisters may break open, leak a clear fluid, and then scab over after a few days. They usually heal in several days to 2 weeks.

    The herpes simplex virus usually enters the body through a break in the skin around or inside the mouth. It is usually spread when a person touches a cold sore or touches infected fluid—such as from sharing eating utensils or razors, kissing an infected person, or touching that person's saliva. A parent who has a cold sore often spreads the infection to his or her child in this way. Cold sores can also be spread to other areas of the body.

    There is a slight risk that the baby could catch something on its way out well in genital warts there is and herpes though different is catchable in the same way.

    Your best bet is to go to your doctors and also the g.u clinic again and see what they recommend whilst pregnant.

    I am really sure, I have never had to deal with anything like this. This is something that you need to talk to your doctor about. He/she will be able to tell you so you and your baby can be healthy.

  • Go to www.safefetus.com, I used to refer to that site a lot concerning medications when I was pregnant. But also, you should most definitely ask your doctor/midwife.
