Can You Get Pregnant with Cervical Dysplasia?

What is Cervical Dysplasia?

Cervica Dysplasia refers to a medical condition that is marked by abnormal cells appearing on the surface of the cervix. There are varying degrees of severity when it comes to cervical dysplasia, from mild to moderate to severe. Cervical dysplasia can be a serious medical problem if it is left untreated. In fact, untreated cervical dysplasia often leads to cervical cancer. This can be a serious problem that can result in permanent infertility. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Can you get pregnant with cervical dysplasia?

Most of the time, cervical dysplasia does not interfere with your ability to get pregnant. If you get your cervical dysplasia treated as soon as possible, and it doesn’t turn into cervical cancer on down the road, you should still be able to get pregnant without any complications or issues. Most women with cervical dysplasia go on to have normal, healthy pregnancies on down the road, with no complications or issues.

Other risks

While cervical dysplasia usually does not play a role in keeping women from getting pregnant, it can put you at risk for other conditions. For example, having cervical dysplasia puts you at risk for sexually transmitted diseases. Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases that women with cervical dysplasia get.

Chlamydia is so dangerous because it comes with few symptoms or even no symptoms at all, but it can cause infertility if left untreated. Just make sure to be very careful of getting sexually transmitted diseases or infections if you have a history of cervical dysplasia.

What to ask your doctor

If you have a history of cervical dysplasia, it is always a good idea to ask your doctor about any issues that you might have becoming pregnant. Sometimes, if you have had biopsies in the past, you will have a shortened cervix, and this can pose minimal problems when you are pregnant.

It is not a cause for concern however, and usually is remedied by having your doctor put a small stitch in your cervix to keep it from opening while you are pregnant. If your doctor thinks there are any other risks or problems relating to your pregnancy resulting from your cervical dysplasia, he or she will be sure to discuss them with you so you can make sure you have the healthiest pregnancy possible.
