Cone biopsy has been associated with cervical insufficiency which can lead to preterm birth and early pregnancy loss in the second trimester of pregnancy.

If scarring from the cone biopsy occurs, there can be infertility that can result. Infertility is defined as one year of attempting pregnancy without conception.

At this point you should not be worried. You may wish to see a high risk obstetrician (MFM) in a consultation to discuss how they will follow your pregnancy.

By the way, make sure you are taking vitamins including folic acid.
