Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

Hi Tealdreams,

Complications with future pregnancies was my initial concern when my gyn told me that he wanted to perform a cone biopsy. He told me that there is the possibility of going into pre-term labor because the cervix may be weak, but that it's very rare. Keep in mind that I had a cold-knife conization...I imagine you'll be having a LEEP done; I think that with a cold-knife, more of the cervix is removed? I could be wrong.

My doctor told me that I may need to go on bed rest during the last couple months of pregnancy, but I can handle that. I also have cervical stenosis from my conization (it's pretty common), but I wonder if that will make natural delivery impossible. Also, I think you can have your cervix stitched closed (ouch!) to keep the little one from arriving too soon. Rest assured that there are options!

I haven't yet had a baby myself, but I've heard a ton of stories of women who have after cone biopsy :)
