For a : Straightforward cystoscopy, you would probably have a spinal anesthetic during pregnancy. It is typically a safer choice for you and your baby.

Depends: The most accepted choice will be spinal anesthesia or sedation. All depends on trimester of pregnancy, duration of the procedure, and decisions made by your obstetrician and anesthesiologist.
