Patient : I had a leep procedure in Nov of last year. I recently found out I was pregnant and wanted to know if I would be able to have an abortion. I know my cervix is still healing and I don't know if having an abortion will disturb the healing of my cervix.
There should be no problem for you to proceed with an abortion should you want one. There are both surgical and non-surgical methods of aborting a fetus, depending on how far advanced the pregnancy. Even if you should require a surgical procedure your cervix should have healed adequately to accommodate the surgical instruments to be used.
