[QUOTE=cocoeyes]I've read about the cone operation thing making pregnancy more difficult but as far as the other procedures... Loop and cryosurgery I hear that if it is used more than once it can have an affect of having kids but I also hear that the doctor can stitch up the cervics as well... Did anyone hear differently?[/QUOTE]

That is what my doctor has told me as well. Having LEEP (the loop one) once should not have an effect on your fertility, but repeated procedures can wear out the cervix and make it weak. I am less familiar with cone since i myself had the LEEP, but since cone is more invasive than LEEP, i think indeed that its a bit more destructive to the cervix. But from what ive read, it is still very possible to have children after cone. I think its really after repeated proceedures if necessary that it starts getting more difficult. Yes there is a procedure doctors can do where they put a stich on the opening (i think) of your cervix and make it stronger. Hope that helps!
I had a LEEP done (2 weeks ago this Thurs.) and my Dr. said that having children down the road should not be a problem. It only becomes a problem if you have to have multiple LEEP procedures and more and more of the cervix is removed. But even people who have had multiple LEEP procedures have kids, the Drs. simply sew the baby in so to speak. Also, one or two who have had a LEEP procedure have had pre-term labor but my Dr. said it was very rare.

As far as recurrence is concerned, my Dr. said he didn't think it would be a likely possibility as he removed all the bad cells. He told me as long as I quit smoking, stayed with one partner, etc. I should be fine. But what if the partner I choose to stay with is the one who gave it to me in the first place? One would think reinfection would occur. Unfortunately, there is no way to test males for the virus and most of the time they have no symptoms, so us women are pretty much sunk in that regard I think. I'm just praying this vaccine everyone is talking about can be used in people who have already been infected and gone through a LEEP. This is DEFINATELY not something I want to go through again! If I find anything more out I'll keep you informed.

Hope this provides at least a little information. Hang in there and good luck!

You don't know if your partner was the one who gave it to you unless he was your first... You cannot re-infect your self with the same strain like herpes so don't worry about passing it back and forth. But, if you meet someone new, you are at risk for catching the low strains (warts).
