A 45-year-old member asked:

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.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Will I have a difficult labor due to my bony pelvis?

Dr. Neeoo Chin
Fertility Medicine 40 years experience
Yes: Certain pelvic bone configurations can make vaginal delivery more difficult. If the sacrum, tail bone area, and pubic bone area are not at a certain distance apart, then the baby's head will not fit through. Also the position of the presenting baby's head can make vaginal delivery impossible. Hence the term "trial of labor" becomes all the more important.

Yes, but...: broad topic with several variations essentially the hip fails to form properlybecause the ball does not rest in the socket in the appropriate location early on in life sometimes this goes undetected because people do not have symptoms until later in life when they develop arthritis there is a broad spectrum relating to this disorder to have a specific discussion the spectrum would require xray s
