Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Thanks for everyone's replies. I am with and have been with the same guy for almost 2 years, and unfortunately, I believe he gave it to me. It's kind-of ironic because he's such a great guy, and it's like, you expect to get this type of thing from someone who is not so nice, someone who is irresponsible and sleazy, if that makes sense. Anyways, I don't smoke and never have, but why does using condoms help if he gave it to me??? I am considering going off the pill, actually. I am meeting with a naturopathic doctor next week and plan on discussing this, as my dysplasia has progressed from "atypia" (which I'm not sure what that means) to LSIL/CIN-1. Also, about the cold knife procedure not affecting fertility...I believe my doctor told me that that procedure is used for more advanced/severe dysplasia, and that it also does affect fertility. Any procedure that takes out a piece of your cervix poses a risk to fertility, as we need our wonderful cervixes to both carry the baby and the sperm need to pass through the cervix. That's why scarring from the procedures can make getting pregnant more difficult, and if the spermies DO make it through, if the cervix has been cut and not healed properly from one of the procedures, then we may have a harder time actually carrying a pregnancy to term, and it may cause miscarriage. I believe if you have any procedure such as this, if you DO get pregnant after, I think you'd need to be monitored more closely during pregnancy.

My boyfriend smokes on a regular basic... If we have unprotected sex can he make the dysplasia come again and make it worst?

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=alexandraB]A lot of factors can determine if your dysplasia will get worse or not. The biggest thing is if you have HPV or not. If you have HPV, the dysplasia will almost certainly not go away on its own and may likely have to be removed by a procedure, whether LEEP, cone etc. But these procedures have a high success rate, you just have to follow up and monitor it through your life regularly to make sure that if it does come back again, you can remove it again. If you dont have HPV, it is very possible that your dysplasia, esp since it is mild, can go away on its own. About the effect of second hand smoke from your boyfriend, I would assume that since smoking yourself can make dysplasia worse, that second hand smoke could also make it worse, especially if youre constantly exposed to it in the house or something. But ask your doc about that. Dysplasia is scary, mine was moderate/severe and i had it removed with LEEP and it was successful. You are not doomed so long as you always follow it closely so that you dont let it progress to something further. If you keep all your gyno apointments to a T, you can be one step ahead of the game and treat it accordingly.[/QUOTE]

Thanks for responding to my questions. Although I hear that even if one has HPV and it's a CIN 1 it can go away on it's own. That's why doctors want to do the "Wait and see" procedure. I will talk to my doctor about the second hand smoke situation. My doctor didn't tell me ANYTHING about what to avoid while having this condition. I don't know what strain I even have but most likely it's probably the High-risk type because I know I've been exposed to this for three years now but just finding out about it.
