Good day, please can you shed some light on cold sores (herpes virus) when trying to fall pregnant, whilst pregnant, etc. I get cold sores on my lips quite often and have heard that it can be harmful for pregnancy and baby. What precautions must i take, trying to fall pregnant?

It is only genital herpes that is dangerous for the baby.
