Thank you for the question.
Genital herpes or genital herpes is a genital infection caused by the Herpes simplex virus which is transmitted through sexual contact. Herpes simplex virus has 2 types: Type 1 and Type 2. Herpes simplex virus type 1 affects the mouth area and type 2 affects the pubic or genital area. However, with the development of a person's sexual behavior, herpes simplex virus type 1 can be found in the pubic area and vice versa.
The success factor of a pregnancy is influenced by the health of the husband and wife. Therefore, it is better if health checks both husband and wife are important to do.
The miscarriage that you experience could be the result of your genital herpes. As for other causes of miscarriage:
Infections such as malaria, maternal age TORCH with PCOS Consumption of certain drugs such as birth control pills, painkillers NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) Smoking Alcohol consumption or narcotics use excessive caffeine consumption excess or underweight If you have a miscarriage, it doesn't mean you can't pregnant again. If you suffer from genital herpes infections, you should consult a Gynecologist.
The risk of herpes simplex in pregnant women:
If the mother was infected with herpes before becoming pregnant, there is a small risk of transmitting it to the fetus. However, if during pregnancy the mother's herpes recurs frequently, it is highly recommended to consult a Gynecologist. If the mother is infected with herpes during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy, the mother will be at high risk for miscarriage. If the pregnancy continues, the mother is advised to take antiviral drugs and give birth by Caesarean section. If the mother is infected during the last trimester of pregnancy, the risk of transmission to the baby is higher. Mothers are advised to take antiviral drugs and give birth by Caesarean section. Prevention of herpes infection by using condoms during sexual intercourse and avoiding physical or sexual contact with sufferers. Therefore, the treatment of a partner or husband is very necessary.
Herpes in babies can be at risk of causing disability and even death.
Before planning a pregnancy you should consult a Gynecologist first.

Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
