No effect: Mild dysplasia (cin i) are early precancerous cells usually found on pap smear. A colposcopy can verify that only mild disease is present and rarely are biopsies needed in pregnancy.

Mild dysplasia rarely advances in pregnancy so there should be no effect on your pregnancy. ...Read more
Is domperidone (vomistop) safe in pregnancy? Can it contribute if taken in early pregnancy in sever skeletal dysplasia?
Safety unknown: The safety of domperidone in pregnancy remains unknown. In a prospective study,120 1st- trimester pregnant women taking domperidone were compared against 212 age-matched pregnant women not exposed to any potential teratogenic agent. There were three babies born with malformations in each group. Pending more data, its not worth risking your child. Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23445139 ...Read more
