Different things: Genital warts almost always occur externally (you can see them without a speculum). Most often they will be on the vulva and rarely are they dysplastic (pre-malignant). They are also called condyloma accuminata. Cervical dysplasia occurs on the opening into your uterus and implies pre-malignant changes to the cells. Both are caused by HPV. Your pap tests will evaluate for cervical dysplasia.

Will previous dysplasia affect my pregnancy? Will a previous cryosurgery affect my pregnancy?

No: Cryosurgery probably does not affect the integrity of the cervix. Certain other procedures for cervical dysplasia such as cone biopsies or leep may rarely compromise the integrity of the cervix. Previous low grade dysplasia should not affect a pregnancy. High grade dysplasia in pregnancy should be evaluated with colposcopy as early as possible in the pregnancy.

Genital warts: Genital warts, when taken care of promptly, will cause no dangerous problems. They are not fatal. But they are infectious and contagious and they do spread, so it would be best to see a dermatologist as soon as possible.

Yes: Most people will clear all the warts but it is more difficult if they are extensive or have been present for a long time because they may have spread to areas where they are not even visible.
