Pregnancy and cervical dysplasia

Cervical dysplasia appears to be more common during pregnancy for several reasons. The main reason is because Pap smears are more likely to be taken during a routine pregnancy exam. This increases the likelihood of detection of cervical dysplasia. Secondly, a woman's immune system is stressed during pregnancy. This immune system stress makes it easier for the HPV virus to damage cervical cells.

Immune system support should always be a consideration during pregnancy.
