Hi all, im new to all this and was wondering if there is anyone here who has had a baby after a radical trachelectomy.
I had my trachelectomy in December 2003 and so far so good, am thinking of trying for pregnancy and have arranged to speak to my Oncology Consultant in a few weeks.

Hi Lea Lea,

Like Mookie, I just want to say hi  :) and welcome. I hope your oncologist can give you the answers you want or at least point you in the right direction. The great thing about FF is that you get to 'meet' so many women on a simliar journey who understand how you feel (even though our circumstancies may not be the same) and offer amazing support.

All the best on your journey to motherhood  ^fairydust^

Sasha.

HI, I had a trachelectomy in July 2003 and am now in my 2WW after my second ICSI attempt... it has to be said that the complication that I got after the trachelectomy - cervical stenosis - is apparently quite rare. If I hadn't had it a pregnancy should have been a possibility I think. According to the surgeon there are sometimes problems with the (lack of) cervical mucus (to carry the sperm), so you might have to go for IUI.

Good luck!!!

Feel free to write if you have any questions.

Cheers

Thank you for your lovely messages!

I'm really hoping all will go OK when i see Gyny Onc on 16th March.

Takes a bit to get used to the abbreviations that everyone uses on here!

Love

Hi all,

Had really good news from Onc doc, said as its over 12 months from my op, we should ttc!

Feel so lucky that ive got the chance to try for a baby, if i'd gone in with this condition 10 years ago would have had a full hysterectomy.

Again, thank you for your support

Lea xxx  ;)
