Dec 2013 I had a pap smear - low grade abnormalities - recommend follow up in 6 months. I recently had the follow up pap smear - high grade abnormalities. I got the results from my doctor last week, and have been referred to the hospital for a colposcopy. I asked about pregnancy and she said that I need to have the laser and a baby would not survive this.
This morning I POAS .... positive. I knew I was pregnant.
From what I have read over the weekend a colposcopy is safe in pregnancy, a biopsy poses a small risk, but any treatment cannot be done during pregnancy.
Has anyone else been in this situation? I'm a bit nervous. Will obviously speak to the specialist when I hear from them and get their recommendation... but I'm not really excited about the pregnancy yet.

hi blissfulfairy. I would take the advice of the specialist. it will depend on what the abnormalities are? they could be something simple that is easy and safe to remove. or it could be something more serious that might compromise the pregnancy. you will have to wait until you know more. I hope everything works out well for you and your family. Marie
