Hpv Virus During Pregnancy
So I just want to confirm. It is possible to have an abnormal Pap during pregnancy due to hormonal changes and not the HPV virus?
Yes: Typically a pathologist will look at a cell's nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio to determine if cells are abnormal or not. In pregnancy, your cervix will shed basal cells, which can be frequently confused for cells with high N/C ratios. It is normal when pregnant. But in some instances it does require further workup and closer monitoring. ...Read more

Any new, abnormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge requires professional evaluation. See your doctor soon -- if still pregnant, call your obstetrician immediately. Good luck! ...Read more

Common issue: HPV is a family of viruses, some of which infect the genital tract.In the pre-vaccine era 60-70% of college age women were found serum positive for genital strains. Only a few strains have symptoms (warts) most do not. Their link to cervical cancer is why pap smears are routine. Once acquired, it can be dormant forever.Rare transfer of the wart stains can occur during childbirth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not particularly: Many women carry evidence of high risk HPV strains for decades without it effecting having families. If you are not in the midst of treatment for cervical cancer, the cervix/uterus will carry a pregnancy as it would otherwise & the HPV would be just a novelty. Pregnancy would not increase or decrease the risk involved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just monitor: Hpv positive should not change the course of pregnancy or delivery. Genital warts may increase during pregnancy, and can be treated. Abnormal pap smears related to hpv can be monitored during the pregnancy. Cervical cancer related to hpv is the exception that would impact the pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Typically none: Hpv itself will not harm your pregnancy. If you have developed genital warts from hpv, they often grow rapidly during pregnancy and can potentially cause obstruction to a vaginal delivery. If hpv has caused cervical abnormalities like dysplasia, you may need further evaluation of your cervix. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Somewhat: It depends on how much cervical tissue was removed with the leep procedure. You might be at a somewhat higher risk for cervical incompetence which can lead to a premature delivery. Most women who have undergone a leep procedure will have no problems during their pregnancy. Your OB may follow you closer and if it appears that the cervix is prematurely dilating, special procedures can be done to hel. ...Read more
Not typically: The only way hpv affects pregnancy is if the wart is so big it would affect the baby's head/body coming out of the birth canal. This is a very rare situation.
