I had a LEEP procedure done and later I found out I was pregnant. I started to have pains in groin and pressure. Turns out my lower cervix started to open up so they put in a cerclage in. I am 25 weeks pregnant and still feel the tightness and pressure, it hurts to walk, or when I get up from a seated position. Should I be worried? They are hoping the pains will go away after delivery. Will this affect my ability to have a vaginal delivery.
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Pain can be due to adhesions, infection or nerve compression. All these need to be ruled out. You can try some exercises in consultation with your gynecologist to help relieve pressure. If the cervix will not function properly then yes, vaginal delivery may be difficult. Hope this helps. Take care!
