Cryosurgery while pregnant

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I had cryosurgery  3 weeks ago, before the procedure I did a preg test which was negative... Now I find out I am pregnant. I must be 6-9 weeks along I would guess. Havent gone in for an ultra sound yet.... I am really concerned of any harmful affects this could have on my unborn baby.... any advice info?.... the doctor didnt urge a abortion, she said it is what it is... and she cant promise the health of this baby. I am not sure what to do.. no one seems to know anything about this topic. HELP PLEASE

That must be really scary!  I really don't know anything, but in poking around Google, I've found a couple links to share:

It seems that the standard of care is to not do cryosurgery on pregnant women, but case studies seem to indicate that it may be safe.

I would consult a knowledgeable doctor who can answer your question; I would seek out the opinion of a Maternal Fetal Medicine Perinatologist.

thank you very much!. This has eased my mind a bit. My doctor doesnt seem very knowledgable its frustrating... I live on an island and there are only so many gynos, and I have worked with nearly all of them. Searched the wed for hours and I was unable to find any info. Thanks again.
