Cervical conization while pregnant - do doctors do that, or is it dangerous?

Rarely: One would need to have advanced cervical dysplasia with the worry of possible invasive cervical cancer to warrant a conization during pregnancy. Complications would include excessive bleeding, infection, and loss of enough cervical tissue to risk preterm labor. In 30 years I have done two of these and none in the past 15 years.

Not connected: The headaches may not be related to the cervical conization but something else that the GYN MD who did the procedure can address when you see him/her.
