Hi im carole and a mother of 5 wonderful children with whom are 1 daughter 7 and my boys are 6, 5, 3, 16 months old! Now im pregnant again with my 6th child, well i had to have a surgical procedure done called a leep procedure which they take out a good chunk of your cervix, well my doctor had said if i got pregnant again that i would have to go back in and get another outpatient procedure done to be sown back up! I was wondering if anyone else had this done and what if any complicaitons they have had b/c im worried of miscarrying which is a possibility among other things!

I had a leep procedure done when my son was only a couple months old (he's now 17 months). Maybe mine wasn't as severe as yours or something because it only took me a couple days to recover. I had a pap smear a few months after that and the dr said everything looked great. I am now 23 weeks pregnant with my second child and have had no complications whatsoever. Maybe your dr just assumed that if you got pregnant again that the same thing might happen that caused you to need the leep procedure in the first place?
