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.
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.
