My pap test came back abnormal and my doctor recommends a colposcopy. I am not pregnant now but am currently trying to conceive. Should I postpone trying to get pregnant until after the procedure? If I do so, how long after the procedure (if results are normal) can we continue trying?
Colposcopy is a simple and painless procedure that is performed in the gynecologist's office. The colposcopy procedure is similar to the Pap smear; however, the doctor uses a colposcope, a type of electron microscope, to examine your cervix. It is reasonable to wait for the results because if they are not normal, it may lead to treatment that should not happen during pregnancy.
