First, can you expand on the herpes question?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
If a woman has been diagnosed with herpes, can achieving pregnancy be more difficult? Or does herpes have no bearing on a woman trying to conceive?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 years ago.
Unless we're talking about an extreme case of herpes that involved the Fallopian tubes, and that would be very rare, no, having been found positive for the virus would not decrease a woman's chances of conceiving.
