Re: How can i get pregnant from my partner without transmitting herpes to him?
When you don't have an OB, your risk of transmitting is very low. My friend has been married 15 years (had GH before marriage) and has 2 kids and her husband still does not have it. On the flip side, my husband had herpes all our married life and I got pregant twice w/o herpes...I got it much later.
By the time you're ready to have a baby and married, your husband has to know that sooner or latter he will probably get it from you and accept it. He has to know it is not the end of the world which you can demonstrate by not carrying on when you have ob. Tell the the truth, for most people herpes isn't so bad and some don't even know they have it. Really, the worst part about it is not having it, it is knowing you can spread it. Within a marriage it is no biggie since you both already have it. Also by then you should have fewer ob's and be in tune with you body and know when you will have ob to minimize chance of spreading.
If he loves you enough to marry you knowing you are going to be blind at 40, herpes should not bother him. Sooner or latter everyone has some health issue to deal with.
