Unlikely: There is some rare complications such as an incompetent cervix (premature dilation) but this is unlikely and can be monitored. Otherwise no.

See below: Cone biopsy should not affect your ability to carry a pregnancy to term. Miscarriage is fairly common and two miscarriages are not unusual. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
