colposcopy while pregnant Tasha ❥ Aarilynns Santa Maria, California 93 posts2nd Dec '12
so i had a papsmear done a couple weeks ago and it came back abnormal . they scheduled me for a colposcopy for tomorrow. ill be 17weeks 6days . im super nervous. havent really been able to talk to my dr. about the risks and what not. im planning on going in there and doing so befor anything is done. i was just wondering if any of you had a colposcopy while pregnant. does anybody know if its safe. i feel like having a biopsy on my cervix is just not safe what so ever.

Really? Usually they wait until AFTER pregnancy?

I just went through this. She just basically looked around for abnormalities. If she saw anything concerning, then she'd take the biopsy.

I had a pap to come back abnormal and they tried to do a colposcopy and a biopsy on my cervix at 10 weeks i fought them for weeks over it and got a different opinion. the doctor who gave me the second opinion told me that the biopsy is a big no no during pregnancy and that normally paps come back abnormal during pregnancy and after you have the baby come back normal. it's nothing that will effect the baby and there isn't any treatment they can give you while pregnant if they do see anything. so i waited but the choice is all yours.

Its fine to have done during pregnancy. If you need further treatment however that wont be safe and u will have to wait until baby is here
