There was a girl at Uni with me who had a baby that picked up herpes on its way down the birth canal and within hours went blind and deaf and then died at 6 weeks. She didnt know she had genital herpes as the sores were on the inside. Not meaning to scare anyone but is anyone else worried about this? I got checked for everything whilst ttc, but not for herpes, I asked and they said they dont do it. Now, i dont think I have herpes, but how would I really know? I do get the odd lump down town, but I think its an ingrowing hair most times as it seems to occur only a few days after waxing or shaving. Some people only get an outbreak very occasionally and what if it is now? I know my chances against are good but is there any test i can ask them to do to be sure?
