    Pregnancy after LEEP

    Hello all! I've had some concerns lately after having a LEEP procedure done to remove mderadte-severe pre cancerous cells from my cervix two weeks ago that I might have problems or even not be able to get pregnant when DH and I are ready to in the future. Has anyone here had a LEEP done? Have you had any issues conceiving afterwards? Has anyone ever been considered high risk after getting pregnant post-LEEP? I just worry that I won't be able to carry a pregnancy after having ad the procedure done so any reasuring words of wisdom would be wonderful!

    I have cared for many women who have had the LEEP procdure performed.

    I have always believed there is a slightly increased risk of prematurity and monitor patients carefully in the mid trimester of pregnancy.

    There was a recent article out of Wash U. of St. Louis which looked back at their database and found no increased risk of prematurity in their patient population.

    I still am not convinced there is No risk. I believe there is a slightly increased risk and it needs to be watched appropriately.

    Good luck with your future.

    I actually had a LEEP done back in 2006 to remove pre-cancerous cells as well. I had a similar concern, but here I am, pregnant with my second child!
