Hsil Pap Smear Treatment During Pregnancy
I am 20 weeks pregnant, pap smear came back as hsil. Could pregnancy be the cause and should I consent to biopsies?
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Hello, My wife is 10 weeks pregnant with our first child and, at 8 weeks, she received a pap smear during her first pregnancy visit to her gynecologist. She received a call yesterday from the doctor saying her test came back abnormal and looks to be mild
Don't panic: Pap testing at the first prenatal visit is common. There are precise guidelines about how to manage positive results. The presence of abnormal cervical cells or HPV does not affect the outcome of the pregnancy. A test called a colposcopy may be needed; it is safe to perform during pregnancy. Often mild or minor cell changes can be monitored until after delivery, when they may return to normal. ...Read more
I had an abnormal pap smear. Would an undetected pregnancy cause it? I have to have a colposcopy done and I nervous about the result.
I'm 7 weeks pregnant, had pap smear tst, the result was "BENIGN SMEAR WITH MODERATE INFLAMMATION & REPARATIVE CHANGES". Would it affect my pregnancy?
Sometimes...: During pregnancy there can be inflammation which can be interpreted as an abnormality by the pathologist. Sometimes women who carry the hpv virus can express it during pregnancy due to changes in immune response, and an abnormal pap smear can show up. It may resolve after delivery, but may need investigation during pregnancy with colposcopy and/or biopsy. ...Read more
Have had dysplasia in the past, had cells removed. Waiting for reg pap smear before trying to get pregnant again. Would dysplasia affect pregnancy?
Not at all: If you feel comfortable waiting until a normal pap result is returned before getting pregnant that is fine, but dysplasia should not affect any pregnancy. Women who are found to have dysplasia while pregnant are usually just followed closely and any treatment is delayed until after the six week postpartum visit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Other things: While it is great to know that this is all okay, many other things can cause abnormal bleeding including cervical irritation, polyps,medications, and illnesses such as thyroid disease and diabetes.

The doc gave me a pap smear and told me that my cervix and uterus weren't soft enough to determine pregnancy. 3 preg. Tests say that i am. Could i be?
Makes no sense: Pregnancy can not be determined by the softness of the cervix in any reliable way. A simple urine pregnancy test can be done to answer the question. If you have three positive pregnancy tests then you are pregnant. Clarify what your doctor meant because this does not seem like a very confusing situation. ...Read more
