HSV2 and pregnancy 😔
I was just diagnosed with genital herpes and am severely depressed about it as I'm 23 weeks pregnant. I've had it for much longer than this but only just now had a minor and small outbreak. The Doctor flat out told me while swabbing "this isn't herpes, if it is then I've never seen such a mild case" so I left thinking it was a cloggged hair follicle from shaving. Today I got the awful call that confirmed it and I honestly had an anxiety attack. I will go on an anti viral until I deliver, which is also upsetting but even more upsetting is the thought it could harm my daughter.
Does anyone have any coping skills or also been through this and can assure me at all?
