I'm not sure if anyone can help but I'm just looking for some reassurance regarding pregnancies after LLetz treatments. I am 25 and recently went for my first ever smear which showed changes. Following this I had a coloscopy and a biopsy which came back stating I had CIN3. I then went on to have LLetz to removed part of my cervix. A few weeks later I recieved a letter to say I needed to return and see the consultant where I was told that a histology (test) had been done on the removed area of the cervix and within this they found a very small area of cancer which was graded stage 1a1. The consultant suggested that this may have been the only area of cancerous cells and that hopefully the lletz will have now removed the cancer but just to be safe she wanted to conduct another lletz to check there were no other areas of cancer.
Whilst I was shocked to hear that they had found that there was (and hopefully is no longer) cervical cancer my main cause for upset was the potential effect the treatment may have upon any future pregnancy. I am newly married and was intending to start a family in the near future. The consultant stated that there would be an increased chance of miscarriage following the treatment and that I may need a stitch to hold my cervix apart.
Has anyone gone through simailar treatments and gone on to have pregnancies? Just feeling very upset and worried and would really like to hear from some other people and their experiences. I feel very lucky that the cancer has been found but I am concerned about the future impacts.
Would be grateful for any help! X
