Herpes in early pregnancy - is it dangerous?

January 17, 2014

 herpes in early pregnancy
 Herpes in early pregnancy is dangerous only if it is primary. Such infection may adversely affect the fetus and cause him malformations, as in the maternal blood have protective antibodies to the infection. Recurrence of chronic herpes is much less dangerous.


Herpes and pregnancy planning

Today, experts strongly recommend preliminary plan pregnancy (2-3 months before conception) examination of both spouses. During the examination of both spouses is fully examined, including detect latent infections, sexually transmitted infections. All of these infections can be a barrier to conception or childbearing, which is why they need to identify and treat pregnancy.

But there are a number of diseases that have a direct negative impact on the fetus, causing malformations or abortions. These diseases are called TORCH infections (the first letters of the Latin names of each of the members of the group of infections). By TORCH infections include rubella Rubella - it is better to be vaccinated  Rubella - it is better to be vaccinated
 Herpes, cytomegalovirus infection, and toxoplasmosis Toxoplasmosis: pregnant women against cats  Toxoplasmosis: pregnant women against cats
 . These infections are very common, especially disseminated herpes simplex virus. Therefore, it is important to make sure your body expectant parents do not have such a threat to the unborn child.


Does herpes on conception?

Long flowing genital herpes, can influence conception indirectly by causing a decrease in fertility and infertility, even as a man and a woman. Direct impact on the process of conception does not have the herpes virus.

Herpes and conception normally not connected, and the fruit does not suffer even if the time of conception both parents had an exacerbation of herpes infection.


Herpes in the first trimester of pregnancy

Herpes in early pregnancy is very dangerous only if there is a primary infection of pregnant women this infection. It is really very dangerous, because after infection in the blood of women do not immediately produce antibodies to the infection and herpes virus can freely (because these terms do not even have the placenta protects the fetus from infection, it is fully formed only in the second trimester) to penetrate to the fetus.

In most cases, a herpes virus, entering the fetus in early pregnancy, causing his death and miscarriage Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?  Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?

If the fetus is killed, the meeting with the herpes virus still does not remain without consequences - it has developed malformations of the bodies, which were laid at the time of intrauterine infection. Typically, these children or not viable, or are disabled. However, there are isolated cases where such a situation, the child is born healthy. But such cases are rare.

Much better is the case with the presence of women with recurrent herpes infections. This herpes in early pregnancy, of course, is also not desirable, but it is much less dangerous, because a woman's body produced protective antibodies that protect the fruit, and the woman herself, from the negative effects of infection. In most cases, these women are born healthy children.

Cold sores on the genitals for the first time appeared in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy - what to do?

First of all, do not panic. Stress - is also a significant risk factor during pregnancy. The first manifestation of HSV infection during pregnancy, it does not mean that the woman she had just caught. Such infections often occur hidden and many women are unaware of their presence. During pregnancy, reduced immunity and so many sexual infections is starting to show, including herpes.

What to do in such a situation? We need to see a doctor and to the survey. Today, there are tests that accurately determine whether the infection is primary or recurrent chronic disease. To clarify the diagnosis taken a blood test. Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) detecting the presence of antibodies in the blood of women to HSV Herpes simplex - in fact, not so simple  Herpes simplex - in fact, not so simple

Detectable in primary and recurrent herpes antibodies belong to different classes of immunoglobulins. Thus, during the initial infection of herpes antibodies are produced first-class immunoglobulin M (IgM). This temporary antibodies that disappear after some time. Antibodies of class immunoglobulin G (IgG) produced later and remain in the body for life. At this early beginning of the disease produced IgG, which are unstable due to the antigen - a herpes virus. Detection of early IgG proves the existence of a primary infection.

At relapse of the disease in the blood are found later IgG, which have strong ties with the herpes virus.

If it is proved that in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy was a primary infection with herpes, a woman offered her to interrupt. In subsequent pregnancies, risk to the fetus is minimized.
