Pregnancy after cervical cancer at 39 ?

User Profile
Hi there,

I am a 39 year old female who has had surgery for cervical cancer. I never had to have chemo, it was discovered in the very early stages so they were able to surgically remove the affected cells from my cervix using the LEAP procedure. I was put on pre-natal vitamins right after the surgery.

My husband is 51. He has been diagnosed with low testosterone and was told it was due to his sleep apnea. He has been wearing a mouthpiece for two months and no longer has any snoring problems.

We have recently started trying to get me pregnant, and are wondering what our chances are. I've read some articles, and I can tell you that although he has gained weight since we first met (he was a smoker but quit almost 5 years ago..hence the weight gain), he does NOT have any problem getting an errection, staying errect, ejaculating, sex drive is very good, testicles are not small, soft or missing and he has not developed any male breasts.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The only way to know whether you can conceive or not is go for a semen analysis. If the sperm count, morphology and motility are normal then since ll other parameters like erection, sex drive etc are within normal limits, you should be able to conceive. In your case post LEEP procedure, the possibility of cervical adhesions should be ruled out. Hope this helps. Take care!
