A statement published in 2012 on "Preventing the First Cesarean Delivery" by ACOG, SMFM, and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development advises us to avoid admittance of women during the early latent phase of labor (Obstet Gynecol.
Researchers concluded that lack of progress in labor is a dominant reason for cesareans (especially those done during the latent phase of labor or in the second stage of unprolonged labor).
Precisely how immunosuppressive agents work is not clear, but it has been suggested that if in fact a low level of viral replication is constantly or intermittently taking place in the latent phase, suppression of the host's immune defense mechanisms may give the virus a better opportunity to replicate and spread.[17,18] In the case we report, risk factors for reactivation included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, as well as an underlying diagnosis of an aggressive, recurrent intracranial neoplasm.

In 28.2% with prolonged latent phase of more than 20 hours in Caesarean section had to be performed.
Reactivation of a long dormant infection was a possibility, but the idea conflicts with all we know of the biology of the virus in which a latent phase has not been found.
This study, like the others randomizing late, (3,4) has shown only that when women's early or latent phase pain is managed with intrathecal narcotic or other pharmacological or nonpharmacological means, an epidural in the active phase of labor does not increase the cesarean section rate.
Although a latent phase in the second stage is often perceived as abnormal and may be treated as uterine inertia, it is probably a physiological phenomenon relating to the retraction of the cervix around the head and the descent of the fetal head into the vaginal canal.
