I've had a letter come saying I'm severe dyskaryosis and will need a colposcopy but I'm 5 weeks pregnant, will this effect anything? I'm an anxious person anyway and usually dont go for tests ect as I'm happier not knowing and I'm starting to wish I'd done the same here, every case I've read about have needed a biopsy but this doesn't sound safe when your pregnant? I just have no one to talk too/to help me answer any questions at all
Hi there, sorry you are going through this at what should be just a very happy time. The colposcopy and punch biopsy are completely safe during pregnancy, show no increased risk for miscarriage. The only procedure that shouldn’t be done is an endocervical biopsy which is taken from higher up in the cervix.
