it does not neccesarily cause FERTILITY problems with the exception of the os of the cervix closing up (where the dialation takes place and the sperm enter). If this happens then the doctor can easily open it back up. The thing to be the most concerned about is miscarraige because the scar tissue is so fragile that it sometimes cannot take the weight of the fetus and a miscarriage occurs. There is also a few thing the doctor can do to prevent this.
There are PLENTY of women who go on to have multiple children after LEEPs. Being infertile means that you are not producing eggs in order to become pg, not that your cervix can't handle the pregnancy. If you should become pg after a LEEP, your dr should insert a cerclage in your cervix to close it up. If your dr sees that your "infertility" is because of scar tissue build up, he can manually go in there and "open" your cervix enough to let sperm through to the egg. Yes, the tissue on your cervix does regenerate over time.

[QUOTE=cocoeyes]Has anyone had a miscarriage from a LEEP or multiple LEEPS??

I hear some doctors tell their patients they can't get pregnant due to there cervix being scared.

My nurse told me anything done to the cervix except a colop and a pap smear hinders pregnancy...

I haven't heard a sad story yet for a woman due to having a leep. Some women even have kids after having a cone operation and that's the most advance treatment for getting rid of cells.

I thought our cervix was able to heal and grow back any tissues lost

Oh thanks God! that is good to know.
i think the thing to think about is ANYTHING is possible. there are many things that can be done to help, and with close monitoring people are doing better post leep/cone these days. i've read/heard of a LOT more success stories than failures, although im sure its very dependent on how careful/closely you monitor yourself. I read about .05 and .1 percent chance of problems, even if thats doubled or tripled, its still not a lot.......

also im not sure, but being born w/ an incomp. cervix may not be the same as having one due to procedures - where there may be scar tissue and issues that came from the actual procedure being done ?
