Is it possible to get pregnant with cervical erosion
What is erosion and its causes
Cervical erosion - a woman’s diagnosis is often heard at a gynecologist's appointment. Under the erosion understand the violation of the integrity of the mucous membrane of the cervix, in particular, the appearance of sores. In Russia, this concept includes any changes in the surface of the uterus.
This pathology is divided into pseudo-erosion (ectopia), which is formed as a result of an excess of female estrogen hormones, and true erosion caused by various sexually transmitted infections (ureaplamoz, chlamydia, gonorrhea, etc.). If in the first case, erosion is absolutely not dangerous and does not require any treatment, then in the second - a thorough examination of the body and the identification of causes is necessary. Also isolated and dysplasia of the cervix. This pathology arises mainly from human papillomavirus (HPV), it can develop into cancer.
Erosion and pregnancy
Erosion itself does not affect the possibility of getting pregnant. If you have been diagnosed with this before planning, then of course it is better to be completely examined. Pseudo-erosion does not affect fertilization and gestation. If, nevertheless, this is true erosion, then it is necessary to pass tests for all genital infections, as well as to make a cytology, to make sure that there is no risk of cervical cancer.
If any infections are detected, the doctor will prescribe a course of treatment for both partners and a retake of tests after that. Only after getting rid of the causes can one deal with erosion itself. There are several methods: chemical coagulation (treatment of the cervix with special preparations), radio wave treatment, cryodestruction (freezing with liquid nitrogen), laser coagulation (exposure to laser beams), diathermocoagulation (electric current). The most benign treatment is laser, nitrogen and radio waves. These methods least damage the cervix and do not leave scars on it.
If erosion was found already during pregnancy, then most often it is not treated at all, since it can harm the fetus.In this case, you just need to be monitored more often by a doctor and follow all recommendations.
Some experts do not recommend treating erosion to unferourished women. After treatment, there is a chance of infertility, and there may be problems with the fetus (reducing the ability of the uterus to stretch). It all depends on the type and degree of erosion itself. If it was formed due to any infections, it creates the risk of infection of the fetus itself. Sometimes it is true that after birth, erosion passes.
