I was told in 2006 that i had genital herpes. Since then I've had no outbreaks and given birth to my child. I did have to have a c-section, but that was due to complications. Is it possible that my ob/gyn misdiagnosed me?
I think it depends of the way your infection was diagnosed. From the CDC fact page about Herpes:
"The signs and symptoms associated with HSV-2 can vary greatly. Health care providers can diagnose genital herpes by visual inspection if the outbreak is typical, and by taking a sample from the sore(s) and testing it in a laboratory. HSV infections can be diagnosed between outbreaks by the use of a blood test. Blood tests, which detect antibodies to HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection, can be helpful, although the results are not always clear-cut."
But Health Central has a site specific to Herpes which you locate here. Since that site deals specifically with Herpes you may wish to ask you question there as well.
