Many women may worry about HPV pregnancy, wondering that HPV virus can harm their unborn child. But in most cases this doesn't effect the developing of baby. Nor does the infection cause any change during pregnancy. It is very important to know beforehand if a women is affected with HPV or no. Women who are trying to get pregnant and not sure about HPV, are asked to take a few tests by their doctors and any abnormalities tell the result. If a woman is suffering from HPV, her doctor will definitely know. Some medical tests are advised, and the doctor will monitor her closely because rapid cell changes can occur during pregnancy.

No link has been found with HPV and miscarriage, premature delivery or any other pregnancy complications. And the further risk of transmitting the virus to the baby is also very small. At times, even babies do get the virus but the babies usually clear the virus on their own. In rare cases, a child born from a woman who has HPV can develop warts on the throat. Sometimes the cervical cell changes go away after childbirth and therefore no treatment is needed.

No test was done to diagnose HPV (herpes) during my pregnancy and I had a vaginal delivery and afterwards my baby died after 3 weeks from the disease. Can I ever have a normal child ? If not what can I do to prevent this from happening again?
