Cervical dysplasia: In general, most mds will delay treatment of cervical dysplasia during pregnancy. Please communicate your pregnancy status to your provider so an informed decision can be made.

Yes: You should inform the practitioner that has scheduled you for the laser treatment immediately. It is unusual to do a laser treatment upon someone known to be pregnant. Unless a cancer is suspected, abnormal pap smear treatments are best delayed until some time after a pregnancy is delivered.
