I had a loop cone biopsy a few years ago and when i looked on the internet I was shocked & concerned about what it said about pregnancy
I'd read that chances are baby would be born before 37weeks
Would most probably need a cervical suture
and risk of a low birth weight
When I fell pregnant I discussed my loop cone biopsy with the Midwife. She told me not to worry and that i should go ahead and have a normal birth.
And I did, I gave birth in October07 to a happy, healthy 7lb12oz and due 2days after her due date. I had no cervical suture.
Not sure if this is the reason why you think you may need a cervical suture.

I've had that as well and then some!! I only have half a centimetre of the original 4cm of cervix left so my gynae. consultant has already told me that I will need a suture at or before 6 weeks and it will be removed at 38 weeks unless I have already delivered. I haven't seen the consultant but my community midwife has spoken with him. But thanks for that

I've had a full laser cone biopsy 8 years ago and am now 10 weeks pregnant. I have my first appointment with the midwife in 2 weeks and will ask what the impact on pregnancy is. I have been left with a twisted cervix and scar tissue. Was told when I had the biopsy that labour would be more difficult, but nothing more. Will let you know if I get any useful information.
