Yes you can get pregnant if you have herpes, it doesn't do any thing to your fertility or reproductive system. Most doctors prescribe antiviral medication which is safe to take, a few weeks before the baby is due, to help prevent outbreaks.
The risk to giving herpes to a baby happens at the time of delivery. If the baby comes through the birth canal while there is an outbreak then the child could contract it. If there is no signs or symptoms of an outbreak then you can have a vaginal birth and a healthy baby. Herpes infection does not affect the ability to get pregnant. Women with herpes work closely with their health care providers during pregnancy to reduce the risk of transmission to the baby during delivery.
There are many drugs, that fall under the category of antibiotics. Some of them are safe during the pregnancy, while others are not. Your gynaecologist knows about the same. You are not supposed to take drugs of your own during pregnancy. Antibiotics are the class of drugs that must be prescribed to you by your doctor. You are requested to tell your doctor that you are pregnant, specially in the early months of pregnancy. Next time you go to the doctor, mention the same again. Do not presume that she or he knows the fact.
No,but due to body changes such as ligament softening and differences in balance it can be dangerous. Try not to lift more than 20-25% of the weight you felt comfortable with before becoming pregnant, and when lifting use your knees not your back.
Please do not lift anything while pregnant. You should even restrict the times you lift other children you may have. If you must lift, use your knees not your back and stomach.
Lifting will NOT cause a miscarriage but as the pregnancy hormones soften all the ligaments it is very easy to hurt yourself, NOT the baby.
This could be because you've experienced break through bleeding or that you are pregnant. Its most likely break through bleeding though if you haven't missed any pills. Break through bleeding usually occurs because the pills aren't working properly or the hormone dosage isn't high enough for you. See your doctor about increasing the dosage or starting a different BCP.
It is extremely common in pregnancy to have pain in these places. The progesterone relaxes all your ligaments to allow the pelvis to alter shape slightly to allow the baby through. Unfortunately it may relax them a little too much and you may have irritation of the sciatic nerve because your vertebrae are not held in place as strongly as normal. A physical therapist may be able to help by giving you exercises and/or a back support.
