Cerclage during herpes outbreatk

My cervix has started to efface and soften. I have my cerclage scheduled for tomorrow and I'm having a herpes outbreak. Will this cause the virus to be transmitted to my baby? Please help b/c I"m scared!

i'm not sure if the herpes outbreak will effect baby or not, how faw along are you. i think you should be fine if the cervix has just started to efface and soften.

From what I understand the herpes can effect the baby during delivery if you are having an outbreak at the time of delivery.  They will definetly want it gone by the time you deliver.  If it is not they will probably want to do a C-section.  If you are having cerclage, then you are not looking at delivering soon, and as long as the baby is not passing through the birth canal you shouldn't have a problem.  Talk with your doc about it though so that you can make an action plan.  You don't want to be caught of guard and need a c-sec when the baby does come.

Hope this is helpful...

Be sure to let your doctor know that you are having an active outbreak...they might not want to do an invasive procedure on you, while you are shedding virus.  It might not matter, but the doctor obviously should be made aware.
