If a woman has had HPV (cervix cancer) and has had two acid washes can she still get pregnant? 35 yr old
Treating cervical warts with acid does not affect your fertility. The only possible issue could be that it could weaken your cervix leading to incompetence during a pregnancy, meaning that your cervix may be two weak to sustain the pressure of the pregnancy and could lead to miscarriage or preterm labor. This is a small risk, but something that your ob/gyn needs to know once you find out you are pregnant. If this ever poses a threat there are treatments that can be done to get you through a pregnancy. Just know there is only a small risk of this happening, but it is always good to be informed.
All the best. ...Read more
