I’m sorry you are going through this. It is always worrisome to go through tests and procedures.

If there is amy concern about cervical incompetence they can always put in a suture when you are pregnant. This keeps the cervix closed until you are ready to deliver. It is removed in the doctor’s office when they think you are close to term.

Try not to let this stress you out too much. Unfortunately, we don’t really have a choice to ignore the abnormal cell results. Getting it treated is the best thing you can do for you and your future family.

If you can, try to delay the procedure for a few months.  Most HPV infections go away on their own (and 80% of adults have HPV.)  Give it six months and see if you heal naturally.  Friend of mine did so – second month, she was positive, but after that her pap was clean, with NO colposcopy, NO LEEP, no treatment of any type.  And she’s had normal paps ever since.

I can totally understand what you are going through.  Although I haven’t been through it as much as you have, when I went through the same procedure, I also freaked out about children, etc.  It’s sensitive down there!  You want to be sure things are taken care of.

I have a friend who has also gone through this…I believe as many as 4 times, and she has not had any problems, and her doctor assured her there wouldn’t be problems.  But I think the best solution is to talk about your worries and fears with your doctor.  Maybe it isn’t as serious, and you can wait, as a PP suggested.  Or maybe it’s necessary, but she, as a medical professional, can assure you there will be no later repruccusions.  Good luck, I understand it can be nerve wracking.

Try and take the time to read good books, or watch good TV, or sip delicious tea.  Make sure you take time to recover, and make your husband take good care of you!

One of my close friends had three LEEP procedures over 10 years ago. She was told that she would most likely NOT be able to have children, but today she is happily married with 2 healthy beautiful children! Even if the cervix is compromised there are ways to enable women to have successful pregnancies. I hope you don’t need another LEEP, my fingers are crossed for you!!! Good luck!
