Colposcopy

Hi, I am 14 weeks and have to have a colposcopy because they saw mild changes on my pap smear. Has anyone else had this? Has anyone had this while pregnant? Can it harm the baby? Does it hurt? I can't find any info on it while being pregnant.

i had it done at 12 or 13 weeks. i'm 18 weeks pregnant now. it can't harm the baby at all. it did not hurt at all. the doctor can get a better look at your cervix and get a better sample. it's not a big deal at all....please don't worry:)

Hi jill, I had one right at the begining of my pregnancy and I am 17 weeks now. I'm not gonna lie, for me it wasn't the most comfortable thing in the world, but the pain is just like a quick one second period cramp. Not to bad. I squeezed my moms finger...hehehe. Good luck

Hi, Im 20+ weeks and the saw abnormal pap come back so they decided to do one on me. That was at like 7 weeks and they said they would do the colposcopy but would not do the biopsy while I was pregnant. All the colposcopy is, was a vinigar rub on your cervix and some samples taken to geta better look. If they decide to do a biopsy on your cervix, ask for a second opinion because my doc refused until after the babies where born. Good luck!

I had one during my second Dr visit, because there were abnormal changes on my pap smear from the first visit. I didn't have the invasive one where they remove a small sample for testing, but he had to look at me up close with those special microscope gla__ses. It wasn't any more uncomfortable than any other gyno exam.

Thanks a lot for your answers, it always helps to hear from people who have been through it. The doctor always says not to worry, but you can't always do that. Thanks!!

I had one done around my 2nd month due to abnormal cells on my cervix also. It didn't hurt but it wasn't very comfortable at all. They said I may have mild bleeding and cramping afterwards but I didn't have either. It just kind of hurt while they were trying to take the photos or whatever. Ouch! It pinched more than anything. I have to have a second one done at the end of this month to compare the changes if there are any but they won't do a biopsy while I'm pregnant. They said if the cells changed a lot since my last appointment in April, they will send me to Mayo to have them taken care of since they will actually treat this while pregnant at a bigger clinic ect. Everyone told me not to worry about it either so I'm trying not to.
