This may be a shot in the dark, was wondering if anyone is pregnant after having a LEEP procedure or Cervical Cancer? I had a LEEP after stage 5 cells were found on my cervix in Jan of this year. Didn't expect to get pregnant as fast as we did, more of an OOPS as doctor told us to wait 3 months. I've been told this pregnancy will be high risk and will be monitored carefully. I also had a EMCS and was hoping for a VBAC this time... but might be another shot in the dark if anyone has had a LEEP after an EMCS and was able to successfully have a VBAC. My situation is a little out of the ordinary was hoping someone could share their experiences and knowledge! Thanks!
They found 'cells' before my first pregnancy and during my pregnancy everything went great. Then after my son was born they found pregnancy had sped up the cells they had found a few years prior. I'm hoping it doesn't complicate things but am still waiting to see the extent of what they took off my cervix.
I'm expecting #2 and I have had 2 leeps. half my cervix is gone, along with most of the glads that produce CM. IUI was the only way to get preggers becuase of the scar tissue and lack of CM. I was told I would probably be on bed rest for at least half of the pregnancy. But who knows, my cervix could end up perfectly able to handle the weight. Just the biopsies, you wont have any issues. The biopsy is a very small chunk compared to how much they take with a Leep
yeah, I wasn't worried about the biopsies causing any kind of harm.. but at my 10 week post-partum check-up they're going to check again.. and she said if I have any more cells, she'll probably do a LEEP procedure. I am so tired of doctors not doing anything.. I've had this off and on for 5 years and it's like all they want to do is wait to see if it develops into something cancerous.. it's like GET RID OF IT!
anyways. good luck to you ladies and I hope you have a happy & healthy 9 months! it flies by
cervical cancer is VERY slow growing, the best thing to do is watch and see if your body fights it on its own, rather than cut out the cells. You only have so much cervix and docs don't want to increase risk of pregnancy complications later down the road. Took me 3 years and 2 Leeps to finally have no abnormal cells...
