Question Latex condom allergy? LEEP questions

I have had 2 Leeps done. First one was over a year ago for CIN I, II. I then had 2 spots show up again, but the colp results came back as cervicitis. Which I then had another Leep last week to remove these two spots. Then I started wondering, could the latex condoms be causeing this stuff to not go away? My husband and I exclusively use only condoms for birth control. I donít want to get a hysterectomy yet, although I am 39, and have kids. I would like to keep the possiblity open for an additional child before I am too old. I have a feeling that my dr will suggest a hysterectomy if this next year also brings abnormal paps. (she already has brought it up at the last colp appt). Do these pieces of removed cervix grow back eventually?

Re: Latex condom allergy? LEEP questions

Do you have a latex allergy? My 6 yr. old is airborne anaphylactic to latex & will break out in hives from touching latex. If you were allergic to latex, you'd probably already know by now, but I think you are trying to say that latex condoms might be aggravating your condition? I have never heard of that. I have heard that they recommend using condoms if you have HPV, but that in itself can't truly protect 100% anyway.

Regarding growth, you will get scar tissue that grows over the areas that were taken out. Sometimes GYNs can't even tell you've had a leep if it was pretty shallow. Anyway, sorry I wasn't much help. I know that not smoking, eating fruits & veggies can help fight off HPV, but that's all I know.
