  • i had a LEEP in may 03 got preg that sept had a m/c then another m/c about a year or so later. however about 4 months after the second m/c i got pregnant w/my dd and now have 2 kids. i was told i have ALOT of scar tissue on my cervix so it made it harder for me to get pregnant, and i didn't dilate past 1 w/my dd b/c of the scar tissue. it may be a little harder this time around, but possible.

  • I had a leep in July 06.  I got pregnant with my 4th child in June 08.  We weren't trying.
    I had a normal pregnancy with no complications. 
    I was told that having 1 leep would not affect getting pregnant.  However, having multiple leeps could affect if your cervix can hold the baby, and steps might need to be taken for that.
    I could see where a lot of scar tissue can interfere as well, but you would need to ask your dr about your specific case.

  • I had it done before ever having kids and never had a problem conceiving, I did however have a problem dialating, and had to be manually forced open the first two times Very painful, by the time i had my thrid i was dialating and a nurse checked me i was still not quite at 2 and 10 minutes later my daughter was out with no help. The scar tissue can be a issue.

    I had the procedure done several times before havign my first child, the last tiem was about a year and a half before i got pregnant.
