You can still have a family.
Having the herpes virus won't prevent conception.
If the mother is having an outbreak at the time of birth, they may have to perform a Caesarean section to prevent the baby from contracting the virus.
The doctor will monitor the mother as a higher risk than someone w/out the herpes virus.
They will do everything possible to make sure the baby does not get the virus.
As far as finding someone understanding about your situation, it's not as bad as I thought it would be.
I've had herpes for about 6 years and had to tell a few partners along the way. I've been pretty lucky that they all found it to be no big deal.
When I first told the partner, I am currently with now, he told me he has it too.
What a load off my mind that was!
Herpes is really quite common. (See my post: HERPES - AN OVERVIEW)
