Re: Cryotherapy Regrets

BUMP

Would appreciate more testimonies, any other pieces of advice...

If the cryo did not aggravate the "CIN" situation in the long term, did it affect any other aspects of your health? (namely in the reproductive zone)

My biggest concern now is whether the cryo procedure will affect future screenings of cells high up within the cervical CANAL. Any insight about this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks .

Nope; I was pregnant less than a year after cryo (bad news for my parents... I was still a teen at the time). I had a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
A year and a half later, I had a second healthy child.

I am currently almost five months pregnant with my third child, 20 years after my last one was born! So far, the pregnancy is healthy, despite the fact that I'll be 39 years old when this baby is born.

I had a PAP last year, and another at the beginning of this pregnancy. Still negative, after all these years. Also had an HPV test last year- negative.
The virus no doubt went into remission long ago.
I am no longer concerned about ever having an abnormal PAP again. I have not had one since cryo, nearly 25 years ago.

I have heard that cryo is actually far less damaging to the cervix than LEEP, cone biopsy, or any other procedure for getting rid of CIN.
A woman is unlikely to have reproductive problems after cryo.
One LEEP is also unlikely to cause problems, but two or three of them can result in an incompetent cervix, leading to premature birth or miscarriage.

Re: Cryotherapy Regrets

I am currently typing via mobile phone so I will cite the exact texts later, but I was curious to know what are the exact causes of mild dysplasia, CIN 1 progressing onto CIN 2/3? I just read another article explaining that women, over the age of 40, previously diagnosed even with low grade CIN 1, were more likely to experience either recurrence or dysplasia with higher grade of 2 or 3 within two to six years AFTER initial cryo treatment.

What is it about the treatment which encourages recurrence and/or increase in the overall CIN grade?

again, I realize the ultimate conclusion is those with CIN 1 are better off not being treated and taking a "wait and see" approach instead, and that most doctors are doing this, but I am still curious to know if and why Cryo overall is a reverse productive, even harmful method of treatment in the long run, particularly for older women.

More thoughts and experiences would be appreciated. Thanks.
