I had a LEEP procedure almost a year ago. On top of that ive been on the depo shot for a long time. But I was wondering if anyone has ever had a leep and if so did they get preg right after or did it take awhile? Was the preg good and have a normal delivery?

I had the leep procedure in 1995 and again in 1996. I had two children already at that point. Since then I had a child in 2002, 2 miscarriages in 2006 and a child just 4 months ago. This last pregnancy was perfect, healthy & easy birth. The pregnancy in 2002 did have lots of BH contractions and a longer labor than any of my others, which may have been related to the leep. The leep can cause some scarring that can slow your dilation in labor.

I am a bit worried about that as well. I am glad to here you were able to get pregnant. When I asked my doctor all he said was "maybe". What a big help huh?

I had the leep procedure done in August of 2005 and a year later my husband and I decided that we wanted to have another baby and the doctor never said I would have problems or anything, well we tried for almost 3 years before I finally got pregnant with our second child, I had many complications in the fist 3 months and now I am doing great, I would like you all to know that it is possible to get pregnant after the leep procedure, but if you are trying just give up, you always get pregnant after you quit trying. Good luck to you ladies out there that needed to hear some advice. I hope this helps you.
