What if I am preg. but it is just too early in the pregnancy to reveil positive on a preg. test? I really messed up and am kicking myself.
I had a colposcopy and some biopsies done when I was 8 weeks pregnant with my son who will soon be 14. I had him at 36 weeks, which had nothing to do with the things I had done. I was high risk for another reason, so they took him a little early.
I had another colposcopy done in my 7th month, but they didn't do any biopsies at that time due to how far along I was. My Dr. wanted to make sure that it had not become worse. She said had it looked worse they would have taken my son at 32 weeks, but fortunately it looked about the same.
I did not have the LEEP until after he was born. Being that they do remove parts of your cervix I definately would think a LEEP is not a safe procedure to have done while pregnant.
If you are pregnant I would think they would do you the same way they did me, and just keep a close eye on it.
