I know i've asked before about biopsies during pregnancy

but i'm getting nervous because my biopsy is next thursday.
i'm scared because i've heard biopsies can cause early labor.
i'll be 29 weeks and 1 day when they do it.
does anyone have any advice?

  • You really should talk to your doctor. You don't say what kind of biopsy... but no doctor would do something that would put you or your baby at risk.

  • i had a very abnormal pap smear so my doctor told me she was going to do a colposcopy and biopsy and that the biopsy would probably cause bleeding and cramping but that baby would be fine.

  • If your doctor says that the baby would be fine then don't worry! The doctor wouldn't do it if it wasn't medically necescary.
