Getting pregnant after the LEEP procedure?

I was told that I may have a harder time than expected to conceive after having the LEEP procedure done, and I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this procedure done and how long after it did you conceive?

  • LEEP stands for Loop Electo-Excision procedure (or something to that effect). It's a procedure used to remove abnormal cells from the cervix. OP - I've had one, and it was at least 6 years ago. I've been pregnant, but it was ectopic. Got pregnant the first time I tried. Have been having problems ever since, but that's more than likely unrelated to the LEEP.

  • They went in and burned out a piece of my cervix that had some precancerous cells.

  • I almost had to have it done but my cells changed back to normal by the same day it was going to happen. So the OB told me I was borderlined with HPV. I had a friend who had it done. After what she describe I'm sorry you had to go threw that. Her OB told her it wouldn't affect her childbearing at all.

  • I had it done back in 1996, and I never have gotten pg since then. The doctors don't think that has anything to do with it, though. I have endometriosis, and DH has poor (and few) swimmers. I think the main issue is that it can affect your cervical mucus. If you are producing good CM, especially the stretchy or clear mucus, then you should be okay.
