After LEEP: Safest Pregnancy Interval Is A Year

Due to HPV vaccination, the willingness of gynos to not operate on low grade disease, and the fact that we don't even check for disease in most women under 21, fewer women face the question of when to get pregnant after the surgical treatment for dysplasia known as a LEEP. LEEP procedures are done with wire loops, and in some women the treatment is done with a very small loop, in others more tissue is removed. Some studies have shown risk of preterm birth, and some studies have actually not shown risks of preterm birth after LEEP. Since the rates of early miscarriage are so high in the population: about 1/4 it has been difficult to prove that LEEPs cause miscarriage. Now a new study, done by the National Institute of Health, published in Nov 2013 Obstetrics & Gynecology indicates that it may significantly lower your risk of early pregnancy loss if you wait at least a year prior to conceiving after a LEEP. The authors theorize that healing and remodeling of the cervix over time occurs, and that this is why the rates of miscarriage are so much lower once you have time to heal. At Women's Health Practice the gynos emphasize that healing is also helped by overall wellness: rest, don't smoke, exercise, and have proper nutrition, and would encourage you to come in and gab with us about that!
