Think having a c-section reduces the risk of your baby contracting the virus too. As once you have the virus its in your system forever so will flair up when run-down/stressed etc.
Poor you, sure its pretty uncomfortable at times
Let us know what you find out x

Dont be embarrassed! we all have stuff thats not exactly 'talk-over-dinner-able' but thats what this forum is for I thought!
I know its the case with Herpes (you have to have a C-section if you have a flare up) I know this as I have flare ups every time I'm stressed or run down, I sometimes have it down below, but mostly I get it in the form of painful ulcers on the roof of my mouth that feel like my whole mouth is bruised and I have a fever, headches, aches and pains in my neck and my ears, and pure exhaustion. Its a bit like flu lol! just had it last week. And I owe this pleasure to my DH who suffers coldsores etc and I caught it from him when we met! lucky me. Anyways, I could have to have a C-section, for my first birth I really wanted one! as i was so scared of labour and birth! lol this time I'd rather vaginal birth as the recovery is quicker!
Anyway I found this, it should put your mind at rest:
The link is below to the webpage I found it from.
Most pregnant women, who have previously had genital warts, would be unlikely to have any complications or problems during pregnancy or childbirth. Unlike herpes, transmission of HPV to the baby occurs very rarely during childbirth so that genital warts are not an indication for caesarean-section unless they are so extensive that they restrict the birth canal. Some of the medications used to treat genital warts cannot be used during pregnancy, so it is important to tell your doctor if you could be pregnant."
