So my doctor basically scared the crapola out of me last week. Long story short I have to undergo a cone biopsy of my cervix and I’m terrified of the risks associated with becoming pregnant in the (near) future. Having children is very VERY important to DH and I.
I know I just need to talk to my doctor about my fears and I plan to do that, but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone had any stories to share with me about pregnancy after this procedure.

If a cone biopsy is the same as a LEEP, then you have no need to worry. I had a LEEP in Aug and got pregnant in Dec. (of the same year) 🙂 Good luck!

A LEEP and Cone Biopsy are not the same! But similar… I just posted on a LEEP. I’ll go find the post.

This was my post about the LEEP. In it is a link that explains the differences between a LEEP and Cone Biopsy.

I had a cone biopsy years ago and had the same exact fears as you. The doctor kept reassuring me that it shouldn’t complicate a future pregnancy. He was right! We’re due in April.
My thoughts are with you. I know it’s scary. Most important thing is that you get healthy now. That’s not something you want to leave and “wait and see.” Then everything will be ideal when you’re ready to start your family. Good luck!

Yeah I do need to make sure I get healthy now. I’m kind of mad at my doctor actually because he didn’t really reassure me in any way. I know that there are possible complications for future pregnancies but from what I’ve read they seem to be pretty rare.
Oh and congrats on your little one!

I know this post is 2 years old, but instead of creating a new post I thought I would just bump this one. Anyone else have experience with this?? Did anyone have abnormal cells return following their cone leep? Thanks!

I had a cone biopsy and a LEEP done in 2009 and was very worried about the same thing. I am now 18 weeks pregnant – my OBGYN did a cervical exam and will do it throughout the pregnancy to make sure everything is good but the last one I had went great, she called and said I had a cervix of steel and the length is perfect. Worst case scenario, if yours was shortened you can get a cerclage (sp?) to help hold the baby. My SIL had that with both her pregnancies and everything was great.
MissGeeBee – I didnt have any abnormal cells return but I did have follow up tests done every 6 months to make sure I didnt have any abnormal resutls. Just last year my doctor said I can go back to getting a pap only once a year.
