Got diagnosis with hpv, had cone biopsy 4 yrs ago and normal pap since.  Do I still have hpv?  Can it still affect me, my hubby and child?

MAYBE: The cone biopsy got rid of the abnormality on the pap smear. There is a percentage of people where the hpv clears, but in others it is still present though not affecting your pap smear it might cause problems in you, but raelly should have no effect on your child.

Hpv: Hpv infection like any viral infection can not be cured!only thing one could do is to have a regular follow up with pap and hpv screen(high risk)!also reduce exposure to multiple sex partners who may bring other strains of this virus to your body.Additionally please rule out the possibility of immune deficiency(diabetes, lupus, HIV , hep c).You could take dietary supplements like curcumin/betacaroten.

See your GYN: There are many benign causes for the symptoms you listed such as vaginal infections or endometriosis. However, high risk hpv can progress to cervical cancer if left unmonitored. Close follow up with your gyn is a must.

I have hpv- CIN3, after 6yr of clean paps. We were trying to conceive when i got this diagnosis. Do i need a cone biopsy instead of getting pregnant?

I have hpv- CIN3, after 6yr of clean paps. We were trying to conceive when i got this diagnosis. Do i need a cone biopsy instead of getting pregnant?

Follow dr's advice: CIN3 is the equivalent of the first stage of cancer. I would think that treating it should take precedence over conception and pregnancy. However, it may be possible and safe to do both. This is something to discuss in detail with your gynecologist. Good luck on both fronts.

High risk HPV (cin 3) at 19, cone biopsy done, am now 24 with missed period, pain during sex and spotting between periods. Smoker and sexually active?

Back to OBGYN: The risk of hpv infection in women is directly related to the number of male sex partners sex with a new partner is a stronger risk factor than sex with a steady partner both vaginal and anal intercourse are major risk factors for hpv infection transmission is usually asymptomatic.

I had a cone biopsy 2months ago.if I get pregnant now, will I be able to carry the pregnancy to term.

The cone biopsy: should not affect your ability to carry pregnancy to term. Given that 7 of your pregnancies resulted in 2 live births, there may be other issues interfering with your pregnancies going to term. Please see your OB to initiate ante-natal care even before you become pregnant.

I have had a cervical cone biopsy. Will this affect my chances of successful pregnancy? (ive miscarried twice at 12wk) and had 3 healthy babies before

Unlikely: There is some rare complications such as an incompetent cervix (premature dilation) but this is unlikely and can be monitored. Otherwise no.

Hello I just had a loop cone biopsy March. I had a normal pap March 29. I'm currently 8weeks pregnant is this pregnancy at high risk.?

Not exactly: The pregnancy is no longer endangered by a CIN or cervical cancer diagnosis with the normal repeat pap. However, the LOOP excision has been shown by studies to slightly increase the risk of premature delivery due to alterations in the integrity of the internal cervical opening.

What is the definition or description of: cone biopsy?

Cone Biopsy: A cone biopsy is a larger form of a cervical biopsy that often removes a cone-shaped piece of tissue from the cervix. Many times it removes tissue that is high in the cervical canal as well as tissue that is on the surface of the cervix. It will often include tissue that your health practitioner thinks is abnormal.

How common is it for cervical cancer to come back after a cone biopsy?

Not common. : The answer depends on what procedue( cold knife cone) or leep procedure was done. Surveillance for up to one year with repeat pap and colposcopy screening helps determine if disease persists or recurs. Another helpful tip comes from the pathologist. If the diseased area removed has "negative margins" your risk of persistent disease is low. Avoid getting another hpv infection too!

Would there be a problem if I had sex two weeks after a leep/ cone biopsy procedure ?

Would there be a problem if I had sex two weeks after a leep/ cone biopsy procedure ?

Bleeding : 2 weeks following a leep is a little early for intercourse. You may disrupt a healing cervix and cause bleeding. Give it another couple of weeks and then only if your doc agrees. If you do experience bright red bleeding 1-2 weeks after a leep, call your doc asap.

Can the doctors tell if a person has cervical cancer before they get a cone biopsy done?

Cervical cancer: Sometimes it's possible to tell ahead of time but not always. Usually a biopsy is done first to make the diagnosis. But since the biopsy is just a small piece of tissue, it's possible that there may be a cancer in a different area of the cervix that wasn't biopsied. In that case, it would be found on the pathology of the cone biopsy instead.

What to do if I am having a cold knife cone biopsy heard u can't have sex for 4-6 weeks after is anal safe?

What to do if I am having a cold knife cone biopsy heard u can't have sex for 4-6 weeks after is anal safe?

HPV infection: The condition for which you are having a cone biopsy done is called "cervical dysplasia". It is caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). It is sexually transmitted. If you practice anal sex, have your partner use a condom. There is no 100 % guarantee, though, that this will prevent anal infection with the HPV. You probably want to ask your doctor to do anal swabs and test for HPV.
