Default Pregnant with abnormal cells on my cervix... What does this mean?

My lady check up was last month and it came back abnormal, so I was scheduled to see the doctor today. They looked in there with a scope and found a group of abnormal cells on my cervix. They called another Dr in and they both looked. My doctor told me they are moderately concerned, and would normally do a biopsy and refer me to a specialist for treatment, but they have to wait until I have the baby. I'm surprised because I have never had an abnormal result, and I don't want to start googling yet because I scare very easily... I know there are a lot of women and medical professionals on here, has anyone been through this? Is this serious? Should I be worried?

What they commonly recommend is a proceedure that is done under a local anethetic and they scrape away a layer of cells and that is usually what sorts the whole probelm out. If your other paps have been fine that is a good sign. Doctors wouldn't want you to wait if this looked dangerous...sounds good that they checked and double checked. Just do not neglect to follow up with this...

Sweetie I don't have advice unfortunately, but want you to know I wish you well, and hope that this isn't anything to worry about. Hugs.

My cousin just had the same thing happen and is now seeing a specialist. Like anything else, it can be of low or high concern. Since it sounds like your doctor is comfortable waiting and you're not able to have a biopsy done, I would avoid googling!

Don't worry yourself until the Doctor tells you something to worry about....Pregnancy first...all else can wait.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry if I was you til after the baby, especially when you are normal before. I actually had the same thing when I had my son and afterwards they did another test and no more. I was reading somewhere the reason why I didn't have it afterwards is that the birth of your baby will wash away any abnormal cervical cells. After I had him, I was pregnant with my daughter and did the same tests and it was normal.

Thank you! Reading your comments really did make me feel better! I called my mom this morning and told her, she started telling me what specialist we are going to, and "she is not taking no for an answer". I let her know I'm comfortable with the doctors keeping an eye out, and that the cells might go on their own after I deliver. I am willing to go to the specialist in NYC for treatment if things go that way, but for now I just want to keep it quiet and focus on the pregnancy. She agreed, but now I have been getting phone calls all day from the rest of the family! We have a lot of cancer on both sides, my grand father, his brother, my dad, my uncle and aunt both died of cancer in the last few years, ect. I know she is just scared, but now everyone is freaking out. Well at least I know I have a support network... lol From what you're saying it seems like it's more a matter of making sure I don't let it go, which I won't. Yes, I am still staying away from google!

Yep...I've always had normal paps & the one I had when I was pg with my youngest--came back abnormal. After I had her...normal. I think it's relatively common to have an abnormal pap while pregnant...at least from what I understand. So no...I wouldn't worry too much or do anything else unless you have an abnormal pap AFTER you have the baby.
