Question (Im new here)
After 1yr of having moderate HPV, about a week ago I decided to have a procedure called LEEP done. I came to this decision after trying all other options(ex cryotherapy). This week I got the news during my postop period that the dyspasia is gone. Now for my question: If anyone has ever had this LEEP done, has your dysplaysia came back, and if so how long before it came back?
I also was told that this may also cause narrowing of the cervix which can cause you to be unable to conceive and/or carry a child.
I would appreciate any info, anyone can give me :)

- I have never had that or the procedure but I know all about it. It completly removed the outer layer of your cervix which in most cases completly gets rid of the bad cells. Your cervix regenerates all the way and the only way to get it again is to contract HPV again. It is possible that if you become pregnant too soon it will be weak but in time I think you will be just fine to carry a baby to term. It is a very common procedure, and you made the right decision. High grade dysplasia is what causes cervical cancer. I bet when the time is right you will have all the children you want. I hope this helps, and if you have any concerns talk to your doctor and if you are not satisfied get a second opinion. Good Luck. :angel:#1; Sat, 15 Dec 2007 17:13:00 GMT
- You cannot "contract" HPV again. That's the "good thing" about it, is you can't reinfect yourself with the same strain twice. However, there are over 100 different strains out there and it is possible to be infected with more than one strain. HPV is an incurable STD - you will always have it! A LEEP removes pre-cancerous cells from the cervix and new tissue grows back. Once you have the procedure, you are not cured, just temporarily fixed until it comes back. Some women have the procedure done and are fine from there on & for some women, it's an on going, never ending battle that just won't give up!#2; Sat, 15 Dec 2007 17:14:00 GMT
- I had hpv when I was 16 and just about every procedure to get rid of it.I finally got a clean bill of health when I was 17. I got married at 17 too had my daughter at 18 and my son at 20. It is very possible to normal pregnancies and deliveries after hpv. Good luck!!#3; Sat, 15 Dec 2007 17:15:00 GMT
