No it will not.: The biopsy samples are fairly small so there is no increased risk to your pregnancy from colposcopy. Current infections can cause problems so it is important to have good prenatal care to test for these - with a family medicine doctor or OB gyn. A leep procedure to cut out a large portion of your cervix is sometimes done if colposcopy is abnormal. Having a leep can put you at higher risk.
