I'm 32 years old. Last month (Jan 2018) my boyfriend and I decided to start conceiving a baby. I went to my gynecologist, removed my IUD and did a Pap Smear.
It came back abnormal with HPV high risk. I then did a colposcopy+biopsy, and they found AdenoCarcinoma In Situ, but also that I was 5 week pregnant.
My gynecologist recommended that I wait for the end of my pregnancy to get a conization, as it could lead to miscarrage if performed during pregnancy.
I then asked different opinions, and basically got all sort of answers:
- Wait for baby delivery then hysterectomy
- Do a conization ASAP because ACIS is pretty tricky and risky, so if I want to put my heath first, that's what I should do
- Do a conization at the beginning of the 2nd semester to lower the risks for the baby, but still detect any invasive cells early enough for me
The last solution is the one I think I'd rather do, but it comes from a doctor in France (I'm originally from France), who is specialised in my tricky case.
I've moved to California in the Bay Area 3 years ago, so if I decide to go back to France to get the surgery, no insurance will cover the costs.
I find it so hard to find a good gynecologist/oncologist/surgeon for my case. So if anyone has some good suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
