Cervical dysplasia and pregnancy

Q: I had a LEEP done to treat my cervical dysplasia 9 months ago. My pap smear results came back abnormal again. Before I could get back to the doctor to see what the next step would be, I found out I am pregnant with my second child. Are these two factors going to conflict with each other in any way? I’m concerned that I may not be able to treat the abnormal cells until after I have the baby, or that the abnormal cells might somehow affect the baby.

A: Cervical dysplasia and the wart virus that causes it can be more of a problem during pregnancy. You can take folic acid, Vitamin c and beta carotene, but usually any topical or local treatment is delayed until after your pregnancy.
