When I was 14 years old, I had cryosurgery done because of cervical cancer. Can I get pregnant?

Yes: Cryosurgery removes some of the cell from the outside of the cervix, but does not usually lower the chance for pregnancy to occur...Unless significant scarring occurred after the procedure. Depending on how much of the cervix was removed, it may increase the risk of miscarriage. Both of these answers should be easy for an ob-gyn or family doctor to tell you after an examination. ...Read more

What : What is the diagnosis that was told to you by all the doctors you have seen? What medication was prescribed? Vaginal "secretion" or discharge is typically not a sign of cervical cancer. A pap smear detects cervical changes including cancer, so if you have not had one this year, i recommend you get one. Back to the discharge. Have you been tested for std's? Vaginal cultures done? Please reply with the answers to my questions and a description of the discharge and any associated symptoms (odor, irritation, itching). Hope to hear from you soon. ...Read more

The only way to know is to go in to your doctor for an examination and possible tests. Please don't assume you have this serious diagnosis until you have been evaluated. All the best. ...Read more
