Hi as above, am looking for ladies who have experienced this. In Jan 2012 I had a colposcopy and loop diathermy as had cin 1 2 and 3. She removed most of my cervix (I have very little left but have been told they have left it quite neat up there!) and also had to go inside my cervix and remove some of the inner layer (cervical canal I guess?) as it had started to develop inside aswell. has anyone had a similar experience and how did they find their pregnancy and labour? I've heard it can increase the chance of early and low birthweight babies. My first was very easy pregnancy, no symptoms no problems, 10 days early 1hr 20 min labour. This time round has already been a lot harder, lots of symptoms from 7dpo a little bleeding andalready been unwell and on antibiotics.
Thanks in advance x

Hi I too had the same thing in 2009 only at the time i was around 8 weeks pregnant when i had it done! I kept going back for regular scan to check the length of cervix as there was a possbility if the cervix wasnt long enough that baby would miscarry or later on would be prem, each time I had a scan they told me cervix had healed well and she was born 10 days late 8lbs 9oz, please try not to worry, im now preg with 2nd and midwife did say she would refer me to consultant due to past issues but so far I havent seen anyone. Please try not to worry too much about it, im sure you will be fine x

Hiya LH86, I had Lletz 2 years ago and have already got 2 children. I was asked if I had completed my family and at the time I didn't know I was only 30 The surgeon said she would only take what she had to and it may just mean I would need a stitch at about 16 weeks. I am now 12 weeks pregnant and on my booking in appointment with the midwife she had referred me to see a consultant (app 8th July). I have read so much on the internet and seen alot of encouraging stories. Try not to worry and talk it through with your midwife... x

Thanks. Id be happy with a stitch. They didn't ask me anything when they did it. Just pinned me down and 10 injections and a lot of pain later I have nothing left (i call myself stumpy now lol) I did a bit of DIY checking and think my cervix is about 1.5 to 2cm long if that! I see mw on 3rd so ill make her aware of it x
