Pregnancy after LEEP

In November 2004 I had a loop cone biopsy on my cervix. In September 2005 I had to have the procedure again. Both times the doctor has said to wait a year before becoming pregnant. What happens if I do become pregnant before the year is up? I really don't want to wait anymore.

Thanks,
Jessica

Dear Jessica,

It is important to wait until your cervix is completely healed before getting pregnant, because of the risk of premature delivery due to a damaged cervix. Complete healing usually takes about 3 months or so. You should talk to your doctor about why he or she wants you to wait longer. You can also visit another doctor for a second opinion.

Sincerely,
Amy
